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.
