This is the final piece to the Bed Room Set. A little different in style, we didn’t want just a standard looking dresser. I made the cabinet and started looking at different looks for the topper ( as I’ll call it). Solid Cherry with a flame pattern to it on Face, Panels and drawer boxes, Curly Maple Trims, Top and drawer fronts. I opened a few drawers to show dovetails and side glide dado, Three point wood drawer glides, I like because the drawer glides smooth and even, with a nice solid sound when you close it. Well as Women do, My Wife got her bedroom make over. New oak floor, and trim, New paint and Stenciling, and a new bed room set, Value I don’t want too think about, but what ever it was, it is a hole lot less than we would have to pay for it. Set included last few postings of Armoire, Sleigh Bed, Night stands and Dresser. Thanks for Looking. Happy New Year! Oh! As of this week “The Wife” is talking Dining Room Set. No Rest for The wicked.

Gorgeous dresser. Neat topper, or what ever it’s really supposed to be called.

Absolutely gorgeous! Aren’t wives the best! Were you able to get any new tools to build it with? I always do my best to figure something I need in return for building the wife something ;-)
