Very nice look, Greg.

Surprised to read that you backed up the drawer lock joint with dowels. Why did you feel that was necessary?

I've got two sets of drawer lock bits fro Lee Valley and, I must confess, have never had much success in getting them to line up properly (although that was prior to my current precision table set-up. I guess I should try it again.

The finish and color is lovely. Did you stain the White Oak, and did you rub out the poly?

Great job, Greg. I'm a sucker for white oak, but it's pretty much impossible to get here in New Orleans.

Greg,

How are the draw fronts made, are they false fronts over the drawer box or is the front the actual front of the drawer? I am working on my first real furniture piece, an entertainment center in the Mission style and it will have 4 small drawers, just curious.

Oh, looks great too, should have said that up front!

looks good. I've got an oak dresser in the works for my 3 year old daughter. I hope mine comes out as nice!

Looks good! I'm wondering how the drawers slide…on wooden runners or with drawer slide hardware?

Do you have any pics of the inside of the case with the drawers out?

Great looking chest of drawers. It is amazing the transformation that took place once the finish was applied.
