My variation of the Wood Magazine Arts and Crafts dresser.

I started to build two of these and then decided to make one big one. There are 16 drawers (all machine cut dovetails). It is 80 1/2” wide, 54” high and 20” deep. All out of white birch.

I had two build it in two pieces with a one piece top inorder to get it in the house. This thing weighs a ton. 1/4” bolts secure both sides.

Thanks for looking

Really nice job. Great storage. I hate small dressers.

Beautiful piece. Even a simple drawer looks outstanding when made of such nice wood.

Very nice. Nothing beats the hold and beauty of dovetail drawers. You definitely have some real storage space available with this dresser. Won’t be outgrowing this one anytime soon.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for all the comments.

It’s nice when the wife isn’t trying to take over your drawers….I wonder how long that will last.

Next I need to build the bed frame
