    Really nice. I especially like the drawer and drawer pull layout on the dresser.

    Thanks all for the compliments. It was quite a bit of work for this set and spanned over 17 months. I built the furniture in three phases. Phase one being the dresser, phase two being the tall chest and nightstands, and phase three the bed.

    I like the drawer configuration as well, however, I “borrowed” it from a couple of Stickley Furniture designs:

    That’s a major accomplishment and well executed … I hope you got a new shop toy for each piece!

    I used the schedule outlined by Jeff Jewitt in the below article. The specific color formula used was “Centennial”. The only difference is I used Zar poly with matte sheen instead of Arm-R-Seal.

    Who’d of thought that not having through joinery or exposed pins on mission furniture would work. Beautiful set.

    Christian, followup question. Love those pulls on the dresser and night stands. What was your source?

    Thanks!

    Wait. How did I miss this the first time around!?! Nicely done sir. It must be really satisfying to have the whole set. Wonderfully matched. Clean lines. I don't miss the spindles at all.
