I built this chest of drawers for my wife and I to replace our two mismatched chests we’ve had since we married six years ago. It’s made of Knotty pine with Poplar drawers and walnut inlays (my first ever). I used through dovetail joiney on the rails and stiles (my first also).

Great job Matt! Love the bow tie insert. Funny, I was looking at the woodworking online podcast about insert this very morning!

Thank you everyone. It’s so large I’m thinking it may have to be sold with the house if we ever had to move. Scott, you have no idea the sweat that was broken getting that baby up the stairs and around all the corners. If I had attempted to build something this big in our old house. We would have to be getting dressed in the basement!!!

Great work! Sold with the house: I’m sure it will bring in a lot more dough…

Well done! That is a big bit of furniture. Nice having the space and nice to look at.

We would love to know the measurements on this chest & if you sell them ready made.

Have your say...
