Simple clean lines with the front corners raised which are fluted and the top is brought out to match the corner profile. The dresser is made with red oak and stained with red oak. Then top coated with three coats of Helmsman gloss polyurethane. The drawers are semi recessed and have drawer guides for easy opening and closing.
Sorry for the distorted picture on the over all image. I could not get a proper angle in the small bedroom.

God bless

It shows very nice. Looks like a sweet dresser. I like the way you did the top.

Great looking piece of furniture. I like the fluted corners and the way you matched the contour with the top.

Really nice. Looks like it will last a couple of centuries easily.

Looks Good!
I agree with Charlie, this will be something that you can pass down to the next generation.
