Just finished the second part of this dresser set (the bottom portion was completed back in autumn). The two pieces are intended to stack, but are identical height and both built with the same toe kick so they can work as separate pieces as well. Dimensions are 34.25” high x 18.5” deep x 72.75” wide (including the banding around the top). The draws are blind dovetails (routered) with a 3/8” 4 sided lip. This was also my first effort at raised panel and/or recessed doors. The bottom edges are lined in felt so not to damage the lower piece.

Beautiful in it’s simplicity, similar to Shaker, no wasted lines. Congrats on the first raised panel doors, they look good. Nice pieces. I like the ability to use stacked, or separately. Nice job.
