Pine Dresser

Our boy was getting bigger, and his little dresser wasn't cutting it to hold all of his clothes. My wife had been trying to convince me to buy a dresser from *Big Box Store*, the likes of which she had purchased before. However, I could not let that happen again, especially as I had constantly told her how much better the dresser would be if I built it.

So I set out to build a dresser similar in size to the dresser from *Big Box Store*, but to use higher quality materials. I decided on pine so it would match the beds that I had already built for that bedroom.

My favorite part of this project was joining 1x6 pine planks to make the top and sides of the dresser. Using pocket screws, glue, and a good random orbit sander, it turned out nicely.

This was the first time I tried to do drawers, and it was challenging, but rewarding to see it come together.

  • It looks awesome. What did you use to mount the drawers? Are there handles on the finished dresser or do you grab the draw from the bottom the drawer front?
