Here is a dresser I built for my oldest son. He out grew his old dresser. I made this with a locking door, so he could hide some of his personal stuff out of reach from his three younger brothers. It is made from maple. I used sliding dovetails in the construction. The drawers are made from poplar. Nothing fancy there. Enjoy.

Love the texture of the wood. The locking door was a great idea!

Very nice job, nice look with the use of the lumber streaking. Unusual but very beautiful.
