dresser progress

Here are photos of the dresser in it’s current state. I’ve dovetailed the drawers and started on the door frames.Here is a close-up of a dovetail drawer carcass. The dovetails are stopped so that the ends of the tails don’t show on the drawer front.And here are the components of the drawer laid out before I glued them together.

oak kitchen dresser

I’m making a kitchen dresser out of solid oak. Here’s a sketch of it…¬†and here’s the oak…I’ve written about planing, thicknessing and rough dimensioning in previous posts, so here is the carcass put together without glue. (dry fit)Once I’ve sanded all the panels I’m going to coat them with a shellac-based sanding sealer before glueing. I’ll then make all the door frames and dovetail the drawers. Stay tuned…
