This is a Shaker-inspired coat rack (hey, winter is on the way) that has four small drawers to hold keys and little stuff.

Awesome project Steve!
The music was a nice touch in this one. It kind of reminded me of woodworks.

Good job Steve!
I liked the trick making all the drawers at once. I look forward to your videos every week.

Yeah, I really dislike making drawers. It’s like making four identical projects, so it was fun to make all at once and build the case around them.

Steve , you make everything look so simple with your great talents : )
I really enjoyed this “professional” style video…very high quality indeed , but I kept waiting for that wild and crazy guy to spring forth out of nowhere ! LOL…Excellent shortcuts and tips and a beautiful project in the end.
Great job : )
