Woodworker: Todd Bradlee
This playful dresser (19 in. deep by 27 in. wide by 54 in. tall) is made of cherry, curly maple, and walnut with turned ebony pulls. Bradlee had just completed a dresser with curved sides when he began this piece, so he wanted to design something with straight sides, yet with a twist. The result is this stacked-box dresser where the drawer boxes can be rotated from 0° to 11°. To make the boxes rotate, Bradlee used 3⁄8-in.-dia. by 2-in.-long bolts between them. When the drawers are partway open, you can reach in the back and adjust the rotation with an Allen wrench. On the bottom of each box are four feet, attached far enough inside to allow for the 11° rotation in either direction.
