CHECKERED FUTURE - natural wood and white dresser






We've all heard the saying "Don't judge a book by it's cover" well this 1920's dresser definitely proved that statement true. The exterior was in nice shape, well stained and polyurethaned, the problem
was inside ...  


BEFORE                   AFTER
After 90 years of love, the drawers had worn out the inside of the dresser.

Here are 2 photos showing how the wood had been worn
 down. The left side is a runner inside the dresser body that
 shows a groove that has been formed over years of the
 drawer moving in and out. On the right is a photo of a
 drawer side and it too has been worn so badly the drawer
 starts to fall inside of the dresser. 

   

Because these drawers ran on SIDE runners the fix was to
 build new runners UNDER the drawers. It took a few hours
 of measuring, cutting, and installing new hardwood runners
 for all the drawers but it got done. Below you can see how the
 interior looked before the work started and after it was 
finished.

The checkered finish on this dresser was something I
 have been wanting to create for a long time.



Keep trying new things!!!
