So here’s the dresser that was delivered shortly after the new year. The drawers on the bottom use full extension glides which I now use in all my projects’ drawers. The design is basic… I call this style of design “basic modern functional that will last for 2 thousand years or more.”

I always line these type of project with airomatic cedar.

I use the Cedar lining in just about everything. There is a debate as to whether aeormatic cedar harms jewelry – soft metals – but I’ve seen a number of high-end jewelry box builders who use it in their designs so I don’t know what that’s all about.

Tim, from the smile on your face, it’s obvious this was a very rewarding project. It looks fantastic, and I’m sure Stephanie loves it!

Very nice design and sharp lines. Nice touch with the Cedar.

All those drawers lined up so well…. I know what a challenge that can be. Impressive!

The pulls were made from Cocobolo. I’ve played with a few ‘drawer pull’ designs. One day I’d like to see an article in one of the mags on different ways to make wooden pulls.

Great looking dresser. In all the years I have been in the cabinet business I have never thought about lining a dresser with cedar. I guess you can still teacher old dogs new tricks. Thanks for the posting.

God Bless

Thanks. Actually it is a luan(?) airomatic cedar 1/4” plywood. I remodeled a linen closet in my house and lined it with this stuff… smells great. All you have to do is lightly rub it with a piece of brown paper (grocery bag works fine) to recharge that cedar aroma.

Hey Tom… I hope you are okay in Iowa with all the flooding and such. I have a brother-in-law who lives in Nora Springs. He does kitchen remodels and other home improvement things.
