This was the first piece I designed. "Design" might be a strong word to describe my process, which was little more than a line drawing.  Flying by the seat of my pants, it wasn't until I assembled it that I realized my proportions were all off.  The drawer was overpowering and the doors looked puny.  After a few days of being in a blue funk, I realized I could change the look of it by visually dividing the drawer it in thirds. Two grooves and three knobs later, a new dresser was born.
