Magnolia. Dressers. October 06th , 2017.
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.
Dressers with mirrors are usually placed in the bedroom as "vanity stations". Most dressers with mirrors are low, about 2-3 feet tall, with a slot for a low stool or chair. The cabinets and drawers flank the space for the chair. These dressers have big tops that function as tables to place cosmetics and other trinkets. The cabinets and drawers usually are not deep and spacious as smaller articles are usually placed in them. Newer designs of dressers with mirrors take out the space for the chair and replace them with cabinets. Furthermore, newer designs are taller and have more spacious cabinets. Newer designs seem to combine the functionalities of a vanity station and a storage space for clothes and bigger articles. These dressers are bigger, and so these are suited for bigger rooms with more space. But there are smaller and more compact dressers with mirrors available in the market today. Although smaller, they still provide the same function.

This piece of furniture is a cross between a bed end chest and a dresser. These dressers are the smallest yet, as they only reach a height of a foot and a half. They are specifically placed at the foot of the bed. They resemble bed end chests only that instead of a big opening on top, you find drawers. These kinds of dressers are perfect for kids rooms and play areas. You can use them to store small pieces of clothes like underwear, socks or towels, and also store small toys, books and coloring materials.This is a less conventional design for dressers. These dressers are big, and are fitted with 1-2 drawers that open up like accordions to reveal a large space that is made especially for shoes. The space is divided into small cubicles that carry one shoe each. Most of these dressers are made with maple as maple wood has deodorizing properties. This is a great way to store, organize and protect your footwear.These types of dressers are great for walk-in closets and big rooms.
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.
