Craftsman Dresser & Mirror

The handsome dresser and mirror you see here are our next offerings in the suite of Craftsman pieces for your bedroom. Lucky are the ones who get to build, and add these fine pieces to their collection.

A piece of Craftsman furniture is a perfect example of an object that is greater than the sum of its parts. Simple rectangles of wood, a modest taper here, a gentle arc there, and a handful of squares moving quietly over the surface. These elements alone are respectable enough, but when you braid them together in the dresser you see here, there’s an earthy symphony that the eye never tires of. This dresser is the latest addition in a suite of Craftsman inspired projects for the bedroom that started with a gentleman’s dresser. Like its predecessor, it’s mostly white oak and maple frame and panels made with tongue and groove joinery. Lots of woodworking fun and challenges here. In the spirit of generous marketing quotes, “but wait...there’s more!” You have the added bonus of a wall mirror that echoes the design elements of our Craftsman Bed. So if you choose to build it as well, your handsome quartet of furniture will blossom into a quintessential collection of Craftsman furniture.
