My dresser is put together and checked out, now I just have to take it apart, finish it and put it back together. It has been a fun project but really heavy.

yep, well done. Congrats. My dresser will not get to get done until next year it looks. Surgery to repair a tendon in my right hand is going to have me down for about 12 weeks.
Your dresser looks fine.

Les, let me start by saying very nicely done.

I was looking at your pics and wondering about the darker rectangular dowels/plugs. They are a nice contrasting addition, BTW, but do they serve another function?

The corner/leg parts, sorry I do not know the terminology, well they appear to be square or rectangular at the top yet a trapezoid at the bottom.

Thanks Max I enjoyed it.

Bill, sorry to hear about tendon, sure you will be back at it before you know it.

Casual1, The squares to the top of the legs are ebony inlays, just for contrast. The legs are triangles turned at a 45 to produce 2 square sides to mount sides and front to. They are a pain in the but to cut out and get sanded but I like the look.

Les, I like the look as well, it’s just when I look at a piece I admire I tend to try to look at the details and construction technique. Once again it was my brain playing tricks on me not my eyes.

Have your say...
