I built the steamer trunk dresser identical to plans from Woodworkers Journal. After the wife gave her approval of the dresser, I then designed and built the nightstands to match.

Built out of African Mahagany Plywood and Red Oak for the slats.

The antique brass hardware and leather handles really make the project.

Some of the best projects are those you wouldn’t normally think of. Very beautiful.

Very nice. Does the top swing open like a trunk or is it a skinny/larger drawer?

Wow! That blew me away. I scan this site every morning for something different to wake me up. This steamer trunk design did just that. The attention to authentic design was precise. And the photography was on a professional level. Very powerful and impressive look. Thanks for a great post. We need more outside of the box thinking and design work here at LJs.
