This is a project I started 4 years ago and had to put on hold because of health issues. I finally gor it finished and delivered last night. It is solid poplar that I bought in Tennessee, dried, and milled. Standard web frame construction with the dividers joined to the sides with sliding dovetails. I also used sliding dovetails for the vertical dividers and in the drawers. Hardest part was the paint—I hate painting furniture, but my daughter insisted. The knobs are from Lee Valley and cost more that the poplar! At least the kids like it.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July.

I’m surprised no one has commented yet this is a great project and a great piece of furniture for the kids to pass through the generations. Your not lying about the price of hardware either that stuff is expensive.

Thanks for the kind words. I posted it late at night so it was off the radar before most people woke up. My grandson (4 1/2) took pictures of it to school and is the envy of his class. You posted a really neat piece yourself. Keep it up.
