Woodsmith No.85 feature project

Built carcass of oak with lauan plywood panels. Drawer sides and backs are poplar with temp. hardboard bottoms. Made quite a few mistakes along the way, but overall it came out well.

Thank you all. Yes, the drawer fronts were all cut from one piece. I had a 30” piece of wide oak board that was sitting around the shop for a couple years. Figured I’d might as well use it up for this project. All the parts for this project were cut using old pieces that were laying around the shop.

Thank you all for the compliments. I plan on building a couple saw holders to mount on the underside of the lid. I also want to build a matching cabinet that I can store screws in.

Great work. It looks a bit like a gerstner chest. I made a tool chest once before… the drawers start to eat at your sanity with repetition.
