Jeremy, that is stunning and classic looking.

I actually like how you mixed the QS and flatsawn oak on the front.

Excellent and professional looking job on the construction, as well as the appropriate finish.

Nice!

Thanks everyone. It was my first attempt at flush fit drawers…quite a challenge to achieve the appropriate space around each drawer perimeter. The stain between the quarter sawn and rift sawn really helps the overall look, as the quartersawn appears slightly lighter than the rest.

Maluco - I looked back through my pictures and do not have a single one of the rear of the dresser (and now its in my bedroom and INCREDIBLY heavy! It is designed so a 1/4" sheet of plywood fit inbetween the main 2 rear uprights and under the top. It is screw fastened in the rare event that I ever need to remove it. The width (outside to outside of front uprights) is 4'-10", the width is 1'-8", the height, floor to top, is about 3'-8", which makes the lower drawer heights around 8" deep and the 2 uppers around 6" deep. I made the drawers slightly deeper and taller than most recommended, as to gain a few more inches of storage space
