With the crib, nightstand and changing station under my belt, it was time to get a going on the dresser. It is now complete and delivered:
Wood: Jatoba, Walnut, Poplar. MDF (under top laminate); notice the drawers were made from continuous pieces so the grain flows across the front
Joinery: Mortise and Loose Tenon, biscuits, finger joints, laminations (using contact cement), sliding dovetails for drawer runners, pocket screws
Finish: Danish Oil (three coats), General Finishes High Performance Poly (4 to 6 coats)
Used my adjustable finger joint jig to make the drawer connections
As you can see from the last picture, the customer is very happy. Now onto a small set of drawers that will go onto the dresser once the changing station is no longer needed.
Again my thanks to Glenn B for the design idea and coaching on the drawer handles. I really like the way these look.
Thanks for looking.
