Very Simple Pine dresser that if I could redo, 1,000 things would change. But for having a shop that is a tiny 6’ by 10’, no bar clamps and no jointer, this is an accomplishment for me. The whole dresser is made from 1” by’s from menards and has two coats of amber shallac for some color then one coat of polyurethane. I life the drawers unfinished and the top has a pour on poly. The top is also some kind of pine but I am not sure what kind. If anyone knows i would appreciate it.

Thanks for looking!

Looks like you did very well with very little!

Great job on the dresser, even more so with limited tools available. The top is Blue Pine, often called Beetle Kill Pine. A microscopic fungus is actually where the color comes from. Pretty stuff though, really. Google it when you get time. Anyways, good job, and that top is just sick with the shine you got on it (in a good way).

Top looks like beetle kill pine to me. Looks like a really great job.

Fantastic job, especially with not alot to work with. And that is a killer finish on that top. I also have limited space to work (live in an Apartment) and would love to hear any tips/tricks you may have picked up working in small space with limited tools.

Some times less is more, I like the simplicity of it. Nice work.
