The dresser for the bedroom as an essential piece of furniture has been much in demand for centuries. Traditionally a gentlemans dresser for his bedroom was made of oak or mahogany usually with two top drawers for stockings gloves cravats handkerchiefs and other accouterments. On the top would be placed lace covers and a mirror that should ideally match the wood of the dresser. The remaining three drawers would be single and capacious enough to carry shirts woollens and breeches.
Be careful of cheap oak dressers. Remember that oak dressers are usually expensive. If you find a piece that is rather cheap beware as there are many manufacturers who use cheaper quality wood to manufacture the dresser and then coat it with oak veneer. With the help of these veneers this cheaper dresser looks very much like an oak dresser.
When compared to pine furniture unfinished oak furniture is second to it in terms of popularity amongst furniture buyers. This is because this unfinished oak dresser can easily be stained and coated in a layer of clear urethane.
