Another Dresser

I have posted dressers before, so in some ways this is nothing special. But construction wise, this is the best one I have made. I switched drawer glides that was a big improvement. But I bought an IBox jig for doing my drawers. Once it’s set up it makes making drawers almost easy. Still need to clean them up a little, but I am going in a better direction.

Beetle Kill Pine. 48” tall, not 36” wide and 18” deep. Several coats of polyurethane for finish.

I love my IBox so much, after the fire it was one of the first replacement tools I bought.

Thanks for reading.

Nice dresser and a running start to getting back in business. Is that the Incra I box…?

Hey Monte, do you sleep? Only kidding. You really crank out the product. You always do a great job, and on the mend from loosing your shop. You are my hero. Keep them coming, and God Bless.

I’m with ‘bugz’..... you must go 24/7 at 93 mph. And you always turn out such good work. Remarkably prolific!

As bugz and spoons said… I also wondered if you do woodworking in your sleep.

Nice job!

Go Monte go! I just bought stock in Monster Drinks, I heard that that is your drink of choice … Just kidding of course, But I do wonder where you get your drive … could you box up a bit and send it to me? I’d really appreciate it.
