My sister asked for a type of “organizer” for her scrap booking material.. 7hrs later is was finished. Dovetailed drawers, 1/4” ply runners, rabbited back, etc.. thrown together with good jointery, glue, and some brads. Made from scraps laying around the shop. I was very happy with it, but kinda upset that its not a hardwood. Reminds me of a machinest chest. I didnt think it was going to look so nice and be so strong. This thing will stay in the family for years to come.

Nice! My wife was asking me about making something similar for her scrapbooking stuff, but I hadn’t really planned anything out yet. Thinking that I may have to “borrow” your design! :)

Looks like a handy trinket. Nice job. Have you thought about a little edge banding on the plywood?

Great idea, well made and I would make one just like it for a tool box. Great job.

That is a nice sturdy case that looks to be made for the task.Tha tis cool the way you made the top come down and look like the drawer fronts.
One suggestion that I have used to hide end grain and dado’s for drawer runners is to put thin strips of veneer over the edges to dress it up and hide the end grain.

Thanks for sharing…........Jim

Great piece. The softwood should be fine with scrapbooking supplies – light weight, minimal wear. Good clean design.

Very nice. Especially considering you built it in one day. Cool box. I agree that it would make a nice tool box.
