I built this Red Oak dresser for a friends daughter. The dresser is 63” high, 36” wide and 22” deep. The drawers are large enough to hold everything she owns and she is tall enough to actually see in the top drawers.
Finished with Minwax English Chestnut stain and sprayed with two coats of pre-cat lacquer. Should last the family a lifetime.
The case is Red Oak 3/4” Ply and all the trim and face frame is solid Red Oak. And of course, full extension drawer slides.

Great job! At first blush it looks store bought and not fabricated in your shop! I ESPECIALLY like the full extension drawer slides. Grats on a job well done!
