Pine dresser stained with minwax and finished with shellac and paste wax. I made soooo many mistakes on this project I’m surprised it ever came together. Cutting the dados in the side panels for the drawer slides I had the guide slip and ruined at least one set that way (might have been two or three). Then when I finally got one side done correctly I was so overjoyed that I cut the second exactly the same; unfortunately the other side needed to be a mirror of the first so I ended up with two left sides. As you can clearly see I should have cut a small piece to cover the end grain (that sucked up the stain) on the two drawer divider. Live and learn.

Looks good! And that drawer divider, that’s the way you planned it! :)
