Design Guidelines: Extra sturdy drawers, must be able to easily pull out drawer, and sit flat on bench. No hardware to keep costs down. Use existing shop white oak, hickory, and reclaimed pine. Keep dust out.
18 Drawers, each named after US presidents in chronological order. When building and finishing, your job is to get all the drawers back in their correct order. (top 3 are marked, and yes, I still have to look at the list!)
Finish is pigment stain, shellac, satin polyurethane. All hickory runners are waxed for better movement.
This is the Upper cabinet – I will make the base next.
Overall a good project, somewhat time consuming, but the drawers will last forever.
Update 2-21-2016: Great storage cabinet, drawers still sliding well. Currently working on building the base.
