This is the 6 drawer dresser that matches the 4-in-1 crib I made for my granddaughter, Hayden. My daughter wanted to see it, so I posted it here for now.

After I finish the crib and dresser, I will do a detailed project post on both of them.

Here is my shop sketch and cutting list for the dresser.

I would like to introduce you to my granddaughter, Hayden, and her mother Jennifer.

Tom, congratulations! You have a lovely daughter and a beautiful and healthy grandchild. She has a beautiful piece of furniture lovingly made by Grandpa. I look forward to the details of the build Tom It’s a great looking piece and I am interested in learning what joinery you used for the unit and for the drawers. God bless Tom.

Thanks Tom for sharing this blessed event of your family and so thoroughly sharing the build. Beautiful story and beautiful work. Seeing the pic of your daughter and granddaughter must make you want to nearly burst from joy, and I can see why. Congratulations.

That dresser looks great, I like all the details and trim work. I like how you include the shop sketch and cutting list on your blog. I wish I was that organized. Thanks for posting Tom.
