This seven drawer dresser is shown here in walnut. Cherry or maple would also work very well. It is a classic in every sense, with lipped drawer fronts and wood pulls. The top has a moderate overhang, and is gently molded on the edges. The back (detail photo) is a full frame and panel, affording both strength and looks that you wouldn't have to hide if the piece is to be out in a room.

Construction is classic and traditional, of course, with hand cut dovetails for all the drawer parts. Internal framing is substantial and joined with mortice and tenons.

Dimensions are 41" long x 33" high x 20" deep. The finish is natural oil/varnish. Priced at $4,400.
