Scratch Wood Dresser

Scratch Wood Dresser

Here is my first attempt at a dresser. Build from scratch, I started with the trees. I modified the plans slightly that were taken from a magazine. Cherry and Walnut used instead of the Mahogany and Ebony called for in the plans. Drawers are Maple with Beech bottoms. All the parts have a lacquer finish which was then hand buffed with brown paper. The plans called for a ¾ ply case which I used but it made the unit very heavy. I plan to build a companion low boy next but will use more traditional methods for the case to reduce the weight.
