From the Ground Up

As I mentioned the other day, I have started working on a new dresser for my youngest daughter. The style is a modified Thos. Moser seven drawer dresser. One of the biggest differences in the Thos. Moser seven drawer dresser and my modified design, (other than quality!), is the base. As much as I like the style of the Thos. Moser version, I'm not a big fan of the base on his. So I found a design from an entertainment cabinet in a woodworking magazine and modified that a little more to my liking.

I've completed all of the design and sizing work. I have even thrown together a quick mock up in pine in to a better idea of how things will look. And I've started piecing it together! The base design that I have is separate from the rest of the dresser, so I've started there. Here are a couple of pictures of what I've got so far...

I realize this doesn't show off much, but that's kinda the idea... is just a tease!

$6340! For a dresser! Who buys that? And how do we get them to buy one from you?

I like where you're going with the base... Thought that was quite a statement about Thos. Moser's design... but I must say, I agree. Anxious to see how it comes out!

I'm not sure who pays $6340 for a dresser... but I do think I'd like to meet them!

Thanks for the compliment Scott. I'm rather curious how it's going to come out myself. So far it's coming out more or less how I've imagined I wanted it... which is a new concept!

This is going to take a while to finish, so I'm planning on having plenty of follow ups.
