This is the mate to the last dresser I built. The top, sides, and front face are mahogany. The draw faces, toe kick and banding are red oak. Dimensions: 78” wide X 34.25” high x 22” deep. The draws are all blind dovetails (routered), floating bottom, and four side lipped. I took extra care on this one to line up the grain on the draw faces so they seem to flow into each other.

Beautiful looking piece. Question – for the interior, you have plywood that has the large hardwood edging for the interior sides and shelves – plywood is typically slightly less than 3/4”, did you just trim the hardwood narrower?

Thank you both.

Ottacat, the interior is pine board, not plywood. Although yes, everything is sanded flush where joined.

Nice job on the grain pattern on drawer fronts!
