Among the many styles of handmade wooden furniture that are still favored today is the Queen Anne style. The Queen Anne style of handmade wooden furniture was first made popular in America between 1720 to 1760 and can be distinguished from other styles by the signature cyma, or S-curve, that is seen in the feet of a dresser or chair, and may also be worked into other parts of a piece of furniture. These S-curves blend well with modern styles of decorating by softening the look of a heavy piece of furniture with the gentle curves. The Queen Anne style of furniture is historically made from walnut, which is definitely a Colonial American tradition. Handmade dressers today are made from all kinds of wood, like butternut, cherry, mahogany or maple. Like walnut, butternut wood is prized for its soft, light yellow highlights and darker grains.
The same dovetail joinery that craftsmen use to create sturdy handmade desks is also used to build elegant tops, sides and drawers of handmade dressers. The body of the dresser, or the carcass, is held together with dovetail joints that add an element of design as well as making it extremely strong. Other dressers employ frame and panel construction that is highlighted by mortise and tenon joinery that is accented with wooden pins. Combining both techniques for any style of handmade dresser is what makes the carcass durable and the drawers move in and out smoothly.

Some people prefer this kind of a dresser set so that they can store their clothes in the vertical dresser and their shoes, bags and other items in the chest of drawers. The main advantage of using dressers is that your things are kept in an organized and logical manner. You can allot one draw for one kind of item and this way you will find whatever you are looking for within a few minutes.
