Another of three projects for one client, along with the coffin bookcase. This was also my first dresser. I made the side panels in the shaker style. I made the two bottom drawers deeper and gave them shaker fronts as well. I wanted to leave as many nice knots as possible. I like pine for its knotty-ness. I’m really happy with how it turned out!

Nice work, great looking dresser. I especially like the two bottom drawer contrasting design feature, nice touch.

Simon, this is a really nice piece. Any tips for working with this style drawer slide?

Thanks! These are the most basic and simplest slides you can get from Richelieu. I used them for this project mostly for time’s sake and budget. They allow for about +/- 1/8” on either side, which with drawer slides is pretty good. Pretty easy to remember the location lay out as it’s 1/2” space needed on either side of drawer, ( so drawer box is 1” under in total), and 1/2” to the centre of cab side from where you need the drawer bottom. With anything, try something new, do your homework, make mistakes, but LEARN from them. I’m a journeyman carpenter, but I love joinery and fine woodwork. Most of what I’ve done comes from a bit of professional shop experience, and a lot of trial and error.
