This an armoire that I made under commission. The owner wanted a simple but practical cabinet that would be sturdy and solid. It was made from 3/4 beech plywood and edged with solid beech strips. I am having a problem with the pictures as they are all in the wrong orientation for showing off. The drawers were made without any spacers to maximize the storage of each. It was also easier to make without the need of a faceframe. The spacing of the drawer fronts was achieved by using an 1/8 strip as a spacer when attaching them to the drawer.

This is nice. I wish that I had it for myself because that would hold a lot of overalls.
