Hello LJ’s

Last week I finished my first chest of drawers. It’s a very small one. It measures 38×18x15 cm. I made a slide-show for you-tube explaining how i made it.


Thanks for watching

Very interesting. One question…is the “curve” lipped to act as a handle to open the drawers or are you going to add some hardware?

Beautiful piece. I love the curve in front. Does this curve have enough lip to serve as the drawer pull as well?

beautiful design, and great video outlining the process. Any plans to make a full size dresser?

I like it and the video wad great as well. The only thing is can you open the drawers as is or will you be making some kind of pulls? Great job!

The curve also acts as a pull. This works good enough.

@manitario : No, no plans on a fullsize one. Would be cool but for now i keep on making small stuff.

Great little chest, and beautiful calming music as a backdrop on the video!

Nice chest of drawers. Too bad about that nasty warp on the front. Maybe a big iron can take it out. Really nice job, seriously. :)
