I made this from a magazine plan. Nearly everything is 3/8” thick cherry. Dimensions are 8” deep, 13 1/2” tall, 14” long overall. I got the wood for a great price from a man who had milled a tree twenty years ago from his yard and never got around to using. Fitting all the drawers was a finicky operation. I wish my gaps on the upper drawers were a bit smaller but it’s not terribly noticable. I think it’s almost as much work to build the small stuff as the big stuff. Most of the construction is dado’s. I lined the drawers with blue felt. If anyone knows a source for a good selection of jewerly box knobs let me know because I waited over 2 months to get these and the quality is terrible. Finish is Boiled linseed oil, then brushed on laquer.
