This really started about 12 years ago when I walked into a furniture refinishers shop and saw the neat little dresser. I asked if I might take dimensions and a few pictures. I then lost the plans and photos. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago and I was very pleased to find them. I don’t know what I am going to do with it after I make it but I am going to build it as an exercise in new woodworking techniques to me. There will be sliding dovetails (machine cut). There will be both through dovetails and half blind all cut by hand. I also am going to do a ship lap back panel, and maybe do solid wood drawer bottoms thinned on the edges with hand planes. I would like to try my hand at grain filling and a French polish too.
The basic size is about 22” square and 13” deep.
Here are some pictures of the original piece, my dimensions and the glue up for the top and sides.
The wood is African mahogany
