I made this project for my wife Valerie. It was a fun project and in reality the first project that I took the time to design every detail using Google SketchUp and making a complete cut list. This made my life a lot easier and in reality probably saved me a lot of time. If you have never taken the time to do this I would strongly recommend this. The post and panel stye lingerie chest has 6 drawers (12”, 10”, 8”, 7”, 6”, 5” in height bottom to top), was built using wormy maple and poplar. Everything is solid wood, including the drawer bottoms and side panels. My favorite thing about the project is the character in the panels and drawer fronts. The drawer fronts were cut out of one board and if you like using wood with eye popping figure I think you will appreciate this. This chest of drawers has plenty of room for storage. If I had to change anything I might have made the bottom three drawers slightly smaller and made it a 5 drawer chest as the top drawer is a little tall for my wife. Which you could think of as a design flaw as I was thinking about it from the perspective of someone who is just under 6’ tall. I hope you enjoy and I would appreciate any feedback on any design changes or different choices of wood that you would have made.
