    i had some size restrictions so the top drawer was left as one drawer to maintain more useable space.. this outa of cherry and it had some curl to it to help match the hutch from a few years back.

    Looks awesome Larry! Did you use the magnamax for the finish? Since you said you have two more are they the same size and did you cut the pieces for the other two while you were building this one?

    alan this one got a size restriction which cost me some time because the parts i had made were to big like the dividers, so to answer your question i did make some of the parts for the next two, have them parted out and need to re size some but should go much faster this tiem.. i had these all ready to go when toni told me he was coming over so it all went on hold till January.. had other things to do in between toni leaving and the being able to restart.. but i did take notes and make some simple jogs to make the next batch easier i read and reread glenns tutorial many times aas i went along.. thanks to glenn for making this one go as well as it did

    magna max was the finish alan, i had two coats of garnet shellac on the side panels and one and a half coat on the rest ran out so thinned it out to cover all i needed to, then took and gave it two coats of toned sealer to make the color match better on the whole piece, then two coats of magna max for final coat.. let me tell you this am i wasnt happy with ole gray beard for dragging his hands across those drawer frnts and the main case but i got threw it just the same.. and it will pass my inspection

    Looks good, real good
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Very nice, Larry! What are the overall dimensions? I am curious why you went with the same size for all the drawers as opposed to progressively getting smaller as you go from bottom to top. I am not saying it looks bad the way you have it, but it does stand out to me, because I see most dressers built that way.
