I made this dresser last summer (2012) from oak left-over from a kitchen remodel. Walnut drawer pulls. The bowed posts and the drawer dovetails were a bit of a challenge for a relative novice working with a rather limited shop; but it got done, eventually.

Very nice oak dresser Pete, looks great. I would liked to have seen a picture with at least one of the drawers open just to see the joinery…excellent job.

Beautiful lines. Looks well constructed. Would like to see a picture of the dovetail work. Please post if you have a chance.

Here’s one shot of the dovetails—definitely a learning process.

Impressive work on that well crafted dresser. Like the great design, joinery and finish. Looking forward to more great builds.
