I made this little baby dresser for a buddy doing a bit of remodel work. It was built into one of those weird, creepy closets that you find in the upstairs bedrooms of old houses. Being built into a corner of the room, the drawers are really only accessible from the angle shown, so I cut out one side of the drawer boxes for ease access. I made it in 2 pieces; the drawer stack first and then made the little wedge cabinet on top that will be used for polish and brushes, I guess.

Really nice build and use of small space.

awesome…this would be great as a front door mini closet for all shoes…I like the detail on the drawer, cutting out the side like that is pretty clever

good job
