I received an antique wooden dresser from my in-laws and had to remove the smoke smell. I placed 5-6 charcoal briquettes in each drawer for a week or so. I then cleaned the outside with pledge. I filled it with our clothes and placed new dryer sheets in each drawer every week for about a month. I also put potpourri in the drawers if the smell started to come back. Unfortunately, wood is pourous, and will absorb the smoke smell. That's why I no longer accept furniture from my in-laws.
