Saving an Antique Dresser

This dresser was in bad shape when some friends asked if I could help.  The dresser looked great from the outside but the drawers were in horrible shape.  The drawers were not square and in places has worn almost all the way through.   There was no actual drawer hardware and the drawers did not function.   The drawers themselves were not salvageable so I cut off the drawer front and converted it to a front only and attached it to new dovetail poplar drawers with cabinet grade slides.
