Modified Wide Cabin Dresser

Submitted by JimmyE3 on Sat, 02/23/2013 - 09:15

My wife's Christmas present. I modified the Cabin Wide Dresser plan to include two extra bottom drawers. I also built the drawers without metal slides which made the drawers a little bigger. Technically, I need to finish this with some nylo-tape to make the drawers slide more smoothly. A similar style/size dresser made of solid wood was easily over $500, this cost less than $200 in materials and my boys were able to help out.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$170
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Douglas-fir 2x2, ponderosa pine 1xs, and maple plywood
Finish Used
Minwax Early American 230 stain, then several coats of natural Danish oil. Brushed the stain on and allowed to dry for 24+ hours. Then put on several hand rubbed coats of Danish oil (I love this stuff).
