Here is my first real woodworking project worthy of sharing. My wife’s chest board with drawers for the pieces. It is White Oak and Red Cedar, There is very few pieces not of my making, actually just two items the plastic feet and the wooden dolls head for the drawer pulls. The drawer dividers are red cedar with a plywood back. The finish is Lacquer 5 coats of it in fact.
Just really proud of how it turned out. I know the wife really loves it. I learned a lot from this build and realize i have a long way to go. :-)

Nice. I like your drawers. You should try making pieces. That really makes a chess set fun! Pick up a small lathe and turn them or there are lots of ways t make pieces without turning. I cant wait to try making another one. I am finding lots of good ideas to steal on here. Keep it up!
