I am pretty new to LJs—this is the first project I put up. My mother-in-law (saintly woman, seriously) asked me to build a desktop cubbyhole cabinet to match an antique desk she uses. It is in butternut, with straightgrain pine drawers. It has six thicknesses in it—1/4 drawer sides and backs, 5/16 separators on the top, 7/16 separators between the drawers, 1/2 general panels, 5/8 sides and base, and 3/4 top. Lots of time with the thickness planer. Stained using Zar’s oilbase stain (great stuff), finished with two coats of Minwax semigloss poly. Really a fun project.
