Today I’m going over How To Build a Mid Century Modern Dresser. When we had our first son I built a similar dresser, so it seemed only appropriate to build another for our next. I got to try out a few new woodworking techniques on this project and I’m really happy with the outcome!

Chris this is my favorite piece yet. A specially the filet in the apron, it separates the case from the base. PS. A cabriolet leg refers to the "S" shape of a leg.

Danny Hale says:

Great build! I've been watching your channel for a while now. As a lifelong, die-hard Cardinals fan your hat makes me throw up in my mouth a little each time I watch, but I really like your work. Your woodworking, narration and vidiography are all outstanding and unique. Keep up the great work.
