I finished the dresser for my son's nursery (finally) - construction,
anyway. Still debating on the finish, but will likely use the same white
pickling stain that was used on the crib. I honestly can't stand it, but
SWMBO MBO, right? I kind of agree with her that it wouldn't make much sense
to put a dark or even light colored wood into the room that is painted a
nice yellow and has the white crib and white changing table already. I was
hoping to use a nice mahogany stain and some antique brass pulls I have. Oh
Anyway, the dresser is a 7-drawer unit (it goes by a different, more
feminine name, but I got reamed the last time I mentioned it this way since
it is for my son) and is made of ash except for the panels, back and drawer
bottoms, which are 1/4" oak plywood. Also, I used one piece of poplar for
the rear base material.
I made up a little website that sort of examines the way small errors during
a project can lead to much more glaring issues when all is said and done.
You can see it here: http://pages.cthome.net/logmanworld/dresser.htm . I'll
also post a few pictures on ABPW.
As always, feedback is much appreciated.
