Ive been building this dresser for around 4 months on and off between long work shifts. It is made mostly of quartersawn cherry with some flat sawn in there. The secondary wood is poplar. The pictures dont do the grain justice , lots of curl , ray flecks ,etc. Both the case and drawers fronts are dovetailed by jig.
I didnt try to follow any particular style but its sort of drifted torwards shaker as the project progressed. The plans and design was all done by myself. Many many hours of drawing before i got to cut any wood.

Beautiful drawers. Reminds me of the chest of drawers that my ex wife used to use. She used the drawers to hide the divorce papers in. It haunts me to this day. The drawers are still in the corner of my room. I wake up every day and look at those drawers, and can only reminisce on the love that I used to have. The youth and passion that I held so dearly is no longer here today.

Lovely drawers!
