Cherry Dresser

This is a dresser I built a couple years ago. I followed the construction method in the article.

The drawer fronts are veneered figured cherry.

The finish is danish oil and wax.
First time uploading pics couldn't figure out sequencing.


Thanks for looking!

That looks really nice - good job!

I edited the post to show all photos but I don't know the order you wanted for the photos. Go to advanced, put your cursor where you want the photo, hit the dropdown by the paper clip, select the photo you want to insert. That will get them where you want in the post.

A piece to be proud of.

Question about the dovetails--why the difference in sizes?

I saw that too. My guess is that he free-handed it. I believe Frank Klausz endorses the method, as it was done in the old days.
