That is looking fantastic!!! I may have to pick your brain a little when I'm finally free to step away from the 'chicken projects' and can get back to building furniture. You're obviously well-skilled in several techniques I've only read about but have yet to attempt. Being self-taught in woodworking has been an enriching experience, but a little tutoring would be much appreciated.
Well, the biggest cost of any project is decent wood (and the biggest headache is finding
decent wood)! The cool part of this dresser is that it's made completely from "construction grade" Douglas fir and pine from Lowes and Home Depot. The other coolness is rock solid construction from solid wood with bulletproof joints, no particle board or plywood here! The drawback is that it weighs about 300 pounds!
P.S., I am also self taught, I took a woodworking class in high school back in the early 70's, but all I built was a chessboard. The real secret is good tools, and I am a tool packrat!Edited by cyborg - 3/21/16 at 9:24am
