This was a quick project I did a couple months ago for my mom. She wanted something for the end of her hallway for extra storage and to hang one of her paintings over. This is a 5 drawer unit. The top drawer is was just made to look like 3 by using a straight 1/8” router bit.

I like the sides how they bow out and then back in. Very nice dresser.

excellent job. Who doesn’t like oak? The sides really do add something to that.

This is a great piece and a work of art! Do you have any other photos of the construction and assembly? Id like to see how the drawer slides are put together. What finish did you use? Again, really really, nicely done.

Here is a play by play of the build on my website. Pictures and comments during the build.
I used my VERY handy Kreg shelf slide guide to help install the slides correctly. Huge time saver.
Thanks for the complements everyone.
I use my “Google site” to post progress on my projects for friends and clients to follow. I like to involve as many people into the building process as I can.

Excellent use of that space. The shape/lines definitely give it a look of stability/heft, it owns that space. Very nice.

I love that this was just a “quick project” for you. A very sharp piece!
