My wife wanted to buy a new dresser so I made this one as a surprise. It’s red oak with minwax red oak stain. It has mellowed to a reddish brown color. This was my first large furniture piece. I’ve got alot to learn on finishing.

-- Just getting started.

Great job on that lovely dresser. Like the wood choice and finish. It will be an heirloom piece for sure.
