Six Drawer Dresser With Cherry Live Edge Top

This six drawer bedroom dresser measures 62"" W X 21"" D X 32"" H. The vertical legs are actually part of the original top so it matches quite nicely. The wood is ash that has a particularly good amount of character. Often times ash be rather boring and stark. The drawer pulls in this case are metal but we will change them to whatever you like. The joinery is floating mortise and tendon.

Like many slabs of this thickness (this was nearly 3" thick) natural internal pressures caused it to warp. In order to correct this the slab was cut into six-inch strips, flattened, and rejoined. See if you can find all three seams. This particular finish has a bit of a shine and it would probably be considered semi-gloss. This was chosen as it's far more durable than traditional oil-based finish such as or tung or linseed oil. It's important to keep in mind that the top surface of the dresser is likely to get a good deal of use.

The six drawers have ball bearing slides so they can be opened and closed easily even if they are carrying considerable weight. This piece can actually be disassembled. The legs and top are attached with screws. The cherry top has stunning grain including a good deal of curl. As always, this could be made with walnut, maple, ash or virtually any available and sustainable hardwood.
