Gentleman's Dresser

Quartersawn white oak and Craftsman design elements combine to create this handsome addition to any room’s décor.

If there’s a piece of furniture that stands proud with a look of masculinity, it’s this dresser. The beefy, solid-wood construction plus, features like the door grids and plugs that simulate through-tenons, creates a stately example of fine furniture. Classic woodworking joinery makes this project manageable in your shop with basic power tools. The case is made with frame and panel construction on the sides, doors, and back. This theme continues inside with the web frames and divider. Strong tongue and dado joinery is reinforced with screws to lock everything together into a solid unit. Inside the great-looking cabinet, you’ll find plenty of storage with adjustable shelves and a pair of pull-out trays. Details like opaque stained glass and Craftsman-style hardware make this piece stand out in any room of your home.
