The results of my latest wood salvage. These are 3 sets of 12 drawers – Oak fronts with Poplar drawer sides. Each set is a different size – 24” 18” 12”. Cases will be sized accordingly, of course. Yet I used most the wood from the salvage to build the drawer cases.

Here’s a pine version of something similar that I use in my shop for small items – layout tools, etc. I use different knobs on the oak and I’m more particular about the fit. There may be a picture of what I’m heading towards in my projects pictures under fishing collectables.

Stopped by one more time looking for more oak. None to be had safely. Picked up some blocks of mystery wood and after cutting into one last night, discovered they were maple. Did some resawing – glue ups and hope to have some decent small boards soon.
