One of my young granddaughters is an avid artist who needed a place where she could organize and store all of her art supplies which includes oils, acrylics, watercolor paints, brushes, scissors and much more. So I built this 11 drawer chest which measures 28” long by 16” high and 9.75” deep. The wood species include Canadian maple, hard maple, curly maple, black walnut, red oak and poplar. I purchased the hardware from Gerstner & Sons in Dayton, Ohio. It was my first attempt at building a large chest of drawers and I will build another one for a grandson but the technique for building it will be quite different. I didn’t pay attention to a lot of things which cost me time at the end. All of the drawer fronts are flush with the case and the reliefs around the drawers are uniform, but not all of them can be easily closed by pressing on a corner of the open drawer with one finger. I think I know how to remedy that problem.
