Art Deco Dresser

I fully restored this Art Deco style dresser.  It has held up pretty well over the last 60+ years.  Hopefully it will stay beautiful for another 60!  FOR SALE!

This is what it looked like when I got it into the shop

The wood making the columns had warped away from the draw fronts.  They had been nailed on from the inside of the drawer

Totally stripped down to bare wood

The brass that accented the drawer pulls had a fair level of tarnish.   Some previous experience in polishing brass came in handy

Found a couple names written on the back of a drawer

Final Product.  It shines like a diamond and as smooth as ice.
