I finally finished a chest of drawers that I built for my 9 year old son. The chest is built from solid walnut that my father-in-law gave to me. The lumber had been drying in his barn for several years. The sides of the bottom drawer are cedar (also from my father-in-law). The remainder of the of the drawer sides are poplar. The frame of the chest is assembled with mortise and tenon joinery. The dust frames fit into dados in the legs. They are pinned in the front of the chest and float in the back. The 1/2” solid side panels are floating. For additional details of construction, you can see my blog at:
My son was pretty excited to get the new chest. He loaded it up with clothes soon after it was moved to his room.
