I tried making Apothecary.
Wood is cedar. Original Design has 3w x 3h Drawer but it was too big. So i’ve changed it to 3w x 2h.
Drawer’s front size is 2”x3”.
but… Cause my cutting miss.. Middle Drawer was a missmatch. so I made middle two drawers as 1 drawer. -..-;;;
outer edge of drawer frame is dovetail joint. Finish is oil stain.
It didnt come out as i planned but it’s not bad.

I find that most projects that I do come out differently than I planned. Most of the time I am the only one who knows that it should have been done differently. I think the double wide middle drawer adds interest an versatility to the piece. Thanks for posting.

Looks good from here. The sign of a master is the ability to salvage and still come out looking good ;-))

And if you are building for someone else never tell were you messed up until they point it out. My wife is a good pointer outer. Nice job.

Looks very nice piece of wood work.
Ho did you cut the fingerjoints on the longer drawer front? You used shaper cutter?

If you didn’t tell us the mistakes we would never know.

I think this is a great first project. You covered many basic skills needed in woodworking. This is necessary for learning and growing.

I think that you are off to a good start. The LJ community will be here to help with any of your questions.

I look forward to seeing more projects.

do you have any plans you would care to share? I would like to review some before I try my own effort at such a project. Hope to hear from you soon.
