Restored Dresser

Restored Dresser

This is a simple dresser I restored. It’s all solid wood including the drawers which are dovetailed; the side panels and top are ply for strength and stability.  Took about 12 hours from start to finish; no power tools used; hand scraped and sanded. The drawer fronts and top have a golden maple stain. The side panels have no stain and the framing is a rosewood stain. I finished by spraying on five coats of precat lacquer via hvlp sprayer. The original picture shows a missing drawer; I had already stripped it; as a test when the picture was taken. Also I picked it up for only $25 at a local thrift shop. =0)
