I made this dresser for my son who just bought his first house. The dresser is shaker style made from curly
maple while the drawer fronts are birds eye maple. I also made the shaker style drawer knobs utilizing black
cherry. Under mount soft close drawer slides operate the drawers. CAB lacquer was my choice for a finish.

That is a beauty. Your son will treasure this I am sure. You know he’ll want a full set now though! This is just the beginning…...!
