After building his bed, my wife thought our son needed a matching dresser. Let her think of the design and pick out the baskets, then made to fit. Mostly made of scraps, 2×6 T&G flooring for the top, 1×8 T&G for panels and shelves, ripped down 3×6 for the posts/rails. Fun and challenging, and all fir.

That is really beautiful Dresser.
...and the beauty of it is your ability to incorporate your son’s (family) need choice and likings in woodworking.
I like the woodgrains – vivid, bold and pops up!
