545 Madison’s Dresser Pt 9 “The big reveal”

April 29, 20153 Comments

In today’s episode we wrap-up this epic nine-part series on the construction of the 8 Drawer Tall Dresser for my daughter Madison.

It always seems to happen no matter how hard we try to avoid it. As we near the end of a build there are plenty of small (and sometimes significant) details we have to tackle before we can move on to the finishing process, and this build is no exception to that rule.

For this project those loose ends include the final dimensioning and installation of the top, and the finessing of the reveals around the drawer fronts, a task that can sound harder and more complicated than it actually is.

Unfortunately at this time my daughter hasn’t picked a color for the paint, nor have we even begun to consider pulls for the drawers, a task I have a feeling is going to be even more tedious than the paint. But I’ll keep everyone up to date in a future blog post or revisit to see the final outcome. Thanks for watching!

A full set of detailed plans are available for sale on my website, thanks to Brian Benham of Benham Design Concepts.

Now that the tall dresser is completed here’s your opportunity to see all the bonus footage originally exclusive to Patrons of Matt’s Basement Workshop. From my thoughts on the design process, to selecting and milling rough stock, assembling the components, and then eventually to finishing it all with milk paint and so much more.

All this great content is now available to purchase and download, or rent and watch, to help you build this amazing dresser in your own shop. For more information visit my Video-on-demand page at Vimeo.com by clicking here.
