This is a storage chest I built last year for my youngest daughter’s 30th birthday. She was very happy and excited since it matches the bed I made for her few years ago.
Believe it or not, it’s all made out of 1/4’’, 1/2’’ and 3/4’’-thick MDF. I’ve put all my heart and my skills into building this piece of furniture she asked me to build for her.
The finish is four coats of oil stain (“Cabernet” color from Varathane) and four coats of wipe-on polyurethane. The dimensions are 43-1/2’’ long X 19-1/2’’ wide X 18-1/2’’ high.
If you want to see the whole process of building it, from scratch to finishing, including tips, short videos, techniques and tools I used, follow this link to the appropriate 21 pages of my website.
