Spent most of the summer building my daughter a dresser. She wanted lots of storage. It's cherry.

Just picked up the glass today. This way she won't have to worry about staining the top with spilling perfume stuff.

Very nice. I love the fluting on the corners. Do you have construction photos? I'd love to see your construction details!

For the corners I use a piece of wood 1 3/4 x 1 3/4 and cut a 45 on the band saw up to where the birds mouth starts. I save the 2 triangular pieces cut off (2 sides) and i make a jig that will cradle the piece. After smoothing the surface i use a 3/16 fluting bit set up to be 3/8 apart. I plow out the flutes using the router until I bump into the birds mouth at which point I carve the last 3 inches by hand. This is the jig

For the fluting across the top I have another jig that will allow the piece to slide thru it. I mark off lines across the work piece 3/8 inch apart and slide the board up to a mark and again using the 3/16 inch fluting bit I cut across one by one. This part is time consuming because I cut a groove, turn router off, unclamp work piece, slide up to the next mark, clamp it down so it doesn't move, start the router and plunge in to cut groove. Repeat what seems like a million times. One mistake and its firewood and a do over.

That is a nice looking Dreeser. I like the moldings you did on the corners and across the top of the draws. I can tell, this is not your first build!
