Dresser I made for use inside a closet in order to free up space in bedroom.

The drawer fronts and trim pieces are alder and I mixed some stains together to get the colors I was after.

Nice job. I would like to know if you used runners or guides for the drawer operation. Designing a dresser now, trying to figure that part out. Would love to see a photo of a drawer open.

Great idea on that great looking dresser inside the closet. Love the choice of wood, finish and pulls. Great job!

dnick, I just used 1X2s to support the drawer boxes. You can see that in one of the pictures I posted. I dado cut the sides of the dresser so the 1X2 frames would fit into the grooves. If you need any more pictures let me know and I will take a couple

The grain pattern on the drawer fronts look great. I don’t think I would have trimmed it with a darker color (dark stain) but I will in the future. That small touch really makes it pop. Great piece.
