Magnolia. Dressers. October 11th , 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.
