A Tansu kinda chest for underneath my workbench. Hardware from Lee Valley, with the cabinet door handle still on the way. It was a resurrection project for my drawer building skills. Though I can cut ‘em by hand, all these are courtesy of my Leigh jig!
Wood is local yellow birch, with cock beaded cherry drawer fronts a la Steve Latta from FWW. I had a goal of minimum wastage, so if an offcut was usable somewhere, it got saved and used, even if it was less than perfect. Same with nails and leftover hardware. It made for some interesting challenges, but kinda unstuck me from the whole ‘if it ain’t perfect, it goes in the scrap pile’ mentality. And I’m still pretty happy with the result.
