Dr. Arquitt's Dresser

A wonderful. and probably permanent, change in our 9 drawer Bureau. I made the drawers the same size for years. I was never satisfied with the complete look. We made a lot of them, and no one complained, but I had a nagging itch to do something that would change the appearance subtly, without altering the form. I TOOK TWO INCHES OFF THE CENTER ROW AND ADDED AN INCH TO EACH OF THE OUTER ROWS..... NOW, THAT IS JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED.
Beautiful alteration............Casework, properly made, is extremely labor intensive. To make a dresser, bureau, or cabinet that will last as long as our other furniture, we have to be very particular. By nature, casework will be the most expensive of our work. We pride ourselves in making exceptional dressers, bureaus, desks, and sideboards.. We can line drawers with cedar, sassafras, or any available aromatic wood to your taste. We have a wide range of hardware available to us, and will offer a broad selection of pulls. Hand cut paneled sides. Full dust panels for strength. Side hung, center guided, dovetailed drawers glide smooth as silk on their wooden runners. 5/4" thick top... Massive throughout, these dressers weigh nearly 400 lbs!!! 5/4" lumber is used on the case and top, and the side paneling is resawn and matched from thicker boards. Traditional mortise and tenon construction.the dust panels are dovetailed into the legs. Full dust panels and reinforced at all stress points. The case is battleship strong. The piston fit of the drawers rewards with a satisfying "woosh" of air as the drawers are opened and closed. The case is sealed and the air enters and exits at the top in back....no drawing floor dust into the case onto your clothes !!
