The drawer fronts and door panels are from cherry and the case is mahogany. The back is poplar. I ran out of poplar so used some cherry for the drawer sides and back. 1/4” ply on the drawer bottom. First time I tried dovetails. My jig is Craftsman pro dovetail jig. They turned out ok, but not outstanding. I definately need additional practice on them. Case assembly is all mortise and tenon. The plans came from a Popular Woodworking book titles Buidling Traditional Country Furniture. Theirs was made from tiger maple.
Overall it turned out ok. Lots of things I learned and maybe should have done differently, but my wife is happy with it.
Thanks for looking!
