So you have finally decided to get yourself a dresser - not only, but an oak dresser as well. This is really a good and wise decision, as investing in oak dressers, or any form of oak furniture, is an investment for a life. An oak dresser is an important piece of furniture to have in a period dining room and of course, your bedroom. This is because a dresser is something that was most prevalent in Victorian times, and was most often used as side tables for dressing food before serving, but in the bedroom dressers were and are used for storing clothes.
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.
Finishing the unfinished pine dresser would involve putting a new coat of paint on it, adding or removing an extra draw to suit your needs or just to polish it. When you buy an unfinished piece of furniture and then work at it you have the advantage of making it exactly as per your requirements and according to your taste. Before you set out to do the finishing yourself, it will help if you do some background research on the topic. You could do some research online and look at models of unfinished dressers people have put together. This way you will even get some new design ideas and you will know what exactly is considered modern yet useful in the making of bedroom dressers. When you have some information on what things you will need, how much time you will take and also some new, interesting style and design ideas, then your unfinished pine dresser will become an amazing finished dresser.
The Double Dresser This is one of the most commonly used bedroom furniture dressers today. Double dressers are short and wide with many drawers - the number of drawers will usually range from six to nine, arranged in rows of twos or threes. Some double dressers come with a dressing mirror attached on top or hanging right above. If you are looking for high capacity storage, then a double dresser will likely do the trick. Custom Made Dresser You might be looking for a specific type of bedroom furniture dresser design that is currently not available on the market. For instance, you have scanned the internet for bedroom furniture dressers designs, found a design you like but could not find a ready made dresser at your local furniture store. Many furniture stores will allow you to place an order for a custom made dresser. This may cost a little more than the "off the shelf" dresser, but at least you will get what you want.
Assembly for the Manhattan Dresser is so simple, even a child can set it up without any safety hazards. With user friendly directions and easy to connect parts that do not require heavy amount of tools, the Manhattan can be set up in a manner of 30 minutes or less. Most of the parts are already assembled together, so there are not a lot of necessary parts to put together. The individual drawers are built on a roller glide mechanism, so the drawers wont fall out of the dresser when pulled to its maximum distance. Most people will tell you that this is an improvement over the old way drawers were built. Drawers without the roller glide, especially on 6 dresser drawers, are a safety hazard not just for adults, but children as well. Children can safely open a drawer on this product without adult supervision.
