I built this Chest of Drawers and Dressing Stool inside our new cedar walk-in closet. These pieces are made of poplar. The stool top is eighteen sections with a 28” diameter. The Chest of Drawers is 74” x 45” with 12 drawers.

Hey Mike
Nice Job looks great at first I thought they were ceder. That’s a lot of drawers but worth the effort. Nice table too. Your wife’s an attorney, do you win any debates ?

These are really nice pieces. Poplar is a largely underused wood, in my opinion. And when it is put in a project it is usually as a secondary wood or wood that is to be painted. The natural finish that you used gives the pieces a nice look.

Nice post.

Nice looking set there. I have a feeling that the top is going to crack on you the first winter it’s in the house though. There’s nowhere for it to expand and contract with the seasonal movement.
