Cherry Dresser With Custom Hand Turned Solid Ebony Knobs

This is a custom made 8 drawer dresser, all in cherry wood which was made from selected flitch matched boards from the same log. No screws or nails were used during its construction, all dove tails of the case pieces that are visible from the outside were cut by hand. All dovetails in the drawers were also cut by hand. The drawer sides were made from hard rock maple and drawer bottoms are raised panels of solid aromatic cedar. Each drawer glides effortlessly on natural wood and not mechanical guides. All knobs are solid ebony. This finish is completely hand applied over a 17 day period and will never chip, peel, crack or flake. It is not lacquer and is never sprayed.

As note, all solid cherry for this project is not only custom milled, but, it is milled to a minimum of 7/8" thickness, which is thicker than standard lumber purchased.
