Well my mother asked if I could make a dresser, she is 76 years old and said she wanted it to have no sharp corners to bump into. So I decided to make everything rounded and flush and to do a extra to try and sell. I took this project from harvest of the trees, transport,milling,drying and the building of the dressers and finishing. They are Red Oak with white oak drawers, the only plywood is the drawer bottons and backs, the rails are mortised into the sides. The drawers slide on a center track and rails screwed to the sides and are just waxed for smooth opening and closeing, the drawer fronts are 2 pcs. with a cove routed in the gap between for the finger pull. Just stain and lacquer for finish. Thanks 4 lookin Mike

Dressers look great! Pictures are a bit dark, though. I really like the design.
