Two cases built, with love, for Lily (7) and Rosie (11) for Christmas 2007. Finished with environmentally friendly water-based polyurethane, these units are safe for children. I used walnut for the sides and lids, maple drawers with cherry faces, and oak plywood trimmed with cherry for the shelves. This minimizes movement (hopefully) and allowed me to use sliding dovetail joints between the sides and shelves. The lids display an inlayed flower for which the girls are named. This project took all my spare time between July and December. I purchased the drawings from the New Yankee Workshop. Thanks, Norm!
