Picture of How to Build a 6-drawer Dresser
Our tall dresser provides a perfect complement to our bedroom suite. Once more, we have combined solid mahogany with figured pomele sapele veneer and wenge. With six spacious drawers, it offers plenty of room for storage. The drawers are mounted on top of the line, full-extension slides that provide complete access to drawer space while remaining almost invisible to the user. In the tradition of the finest furniture, we have included a completely finished back on the case, so you can be proud of this piece when viewing it from any angle.

The dresser’s legs, rails, back-panel assembly and drawer fronts are all cut from solid mahogany. If you have trouble finding a local source for this wood, you can order it, as well as the veneer and wenge, from A&M Wood Specialties Inc., 358 Eagle St. N., Box 32040, Cambridge, Ontario, Canada N3H 5M2; 800-265-2759. You also can order the materials from the company’s Web site:
