I picked up this pine dresser at a yard sale in Warwick, NY for $20. I couldn't really tell how old it was, but the price was right. It had at least 3 coats of paint (pink, greenish and white) along with a crappy antiquing finish. As I disassembled it, I noticed the cut nails and the wooden knobs that had wooded threaded shafts. The drawers are dowel construction. From what I've read, this (and the circular saw marks internal) date it to the mid 1800s. I am refinishing it with a fruitwood stain instead of painting it.
Trying to add more pics now :)
