This elegant dresser is equally at home in the nursery for a boy or a girl- or a master suite. The removable tray top can contain a changing pad…or use your imagination- customization available. The piece is built from solid Pennsylvania Maple lumber and constructed with dovetail joinery. Seven roomy drawers provide storage while the solid brass campaign hardware dresses up the front. Available in any color or stain, nickel hardware is another option. White glove delivery available to the continental USA.
This recent custom dry bar/ curio cabinet was built for a client of Philadelphia’s J.Thom. On site, in a private residence, a granite counter, two glass shelves, and a light were added.
The back of the piece is painted BM Dove White, while the rest of the piece was painted grey, antiqued, glazed, and topcoated with dull waterborne lacquer. With bun feet, crown molding, and hinges by Lee Valley, it is sure to be a useful cabinet for storage and display.

With Glossy White Lacquer and shiny brass details, this custom vanity is all ready to ship to Los Angeles, California.
This piece features four dovetailed drawers on self-closing soft-close undermount slides, two doors (one with a cubby for storing a hair dryer) and a flip-down center section and flip up mirrored top.
