This was summer project. I built bedroom set for my son. The nightstand and wide dresser were plans from plansnow. The tall dresser I drew up all the plans. I used all cherry exept the drawers, they are poplar. (I cant get over how heavy each piece is!) I used a water based stain from target coatings THe color was cherry toner, then i sprayed 4 coats of target coatings Laquer satin.

This was a fun project. Mortise/tenon joinery for frames,dovetail drawers, and solid hardwood top are some of highlights.

Fantastic job. I agree with a nice job on the leg/foot detail.

Great looking bedroom set. I really like the nightstand. Not overly cluttered with too many design elements but still really stands out due to the fine craftsmanship. Thanks for sharing.
