I built a chest of drawers for the wife this past Christmas, seeing as how our bedroom is not very large, I decided to make it tall and narrow, it is a little over 6’ tall and about 28” wide, the drawers are all the same size, 10” high, the drawer pulls ( walnut) are recessed into the drawer fronts, and stand proud about 1/4”, same with the door pulls. because of the height I put 2 shelves at the top instead of drawers, then lined the inside back with red cedar, the legs are ash, ( the thickest wood I had) the side panels are cherry ply, the rest is solid cherry except for the raised panels, which is quarter sawn sycamore, all topped off with cherry crown moulding I made on the router table. I used Zar Brazilian cherry stain, and sprayed on Crystalac water based poly. this was my own design, with ideas from many others.
thanks for looking.
