    Re: Nursery Dresser Build

    Congratulations on your Fatherhood! The dresser is looking beautiful. Did you work from a Sketchup plan?

    Thank you! I think it achieves the look of cock beading using a face frame I had to install either way. I'm happy with the way it turned out!

    Thank you! It is a spin off of a woodsmith plans. I do have a 3d model of it, but in a free online cad program called Onshape. The design carries through a lot of the details I used on the crib build.

    Once again thank you all for the kind words!

    Re: Nursery Dresser Build

    I did manage to finish the dresser a few days after my daughter was born. I have yet to buff out the finish on the case with steel wool, but other than that it is complete and in use!













    And here is the crib that I build along with the dresser:

    It is obvious that was built with love. Great work.

    Bromley, that is beautiful, the last photo with the crib show truly how much care you put into making a special gift for your family.

    Re: Nursery Dresser Build

    Nicely done. I followed your crib build over many months and it was clear during that you were doing some very complicated shaping and joinery far beyond your age and experience.

    Where'd you get your woodworking experience at age 30?

    Looks great. I like the beaded face frame. Well done! What did you use for stain and topcoat?

    Where'd you get your woodworking experience at age 30?
    I think there are a lot of factors that play into that. My grandfather was a carpenter and although I wasn't able to learn much from him it may just be that it is in my blood to be a craftsman as well. I also grew up watching This Old House on the weekends and there was always the latest Fine Woodworking magazine on the coffee table. My father is a general contractor and many summers I worked in the construction industry. Now I'm a mechanical engineer by trade and have always been very attentive to detail and a perfectionist at times to a fault. I've also been metal working for a little over 10 years now running CNC mills, lathes, and welding. I gained a lot of understanding of building and making in general through metal working that has translated quite well to wood working. I've really enjoyed the finer side of wood working and unlike many of the wood workers that I meet at my age I would prefer to use traditional joinery methods. I like to continue to challenge myself and learn new things with each build.

    The stain is a water based tintable stain from Minwax. Honestly it was not much fun to work with, but I do like the result. It was very difficult to get a consistent finish as it dried very quickly like a paint if not wiped off almost immediately. The topcoat is Shellac that I sprayed with my Earlex HV5500 system that I then buffed out with 0000 steel wool and paste wax.
