Five Drawer DresserA dresser to match the low post bed (a previous post). More cherry with oil and wax.
The drawer fronts are all from one long, wide board. The drawer heights are 8.5, 7.5, 6.5, and 5.5 respectively so it was ambitious to get it all from one board. My jointer is only 6″ wide so I hand planed the front face of the drawers before thickness planning. I have an appreciation for those skilled cabinetmakers who did this all by hand 200 years ago.

Joinery... The sides are connected to a structural top and structural bottom with half-blind dovetails. The assembled case then sits on the base. The base has dovetail corners - you might be able to see that in the picture if you zoom in. The finished top is fastened to the structural top with screws. The back is frame and panel and sits in rabbets cut into the sides.
