Chest of Drawers
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.
