6 sheets of 3/4” Birch ply, and 5 1/2” Birch.
24 drawers with 100lb full extension ball bearing slides. All drawers are dovetailed and dadoed.
Sitting on 4 -600lbs rated 4” casters. Triple 2×4 rabitted base makes for a more than solid base.
all drawer fronts were finished in straight grain(almost quarter sawn) Cherry.
Drawer pulls were cut and made from Black Walnut.
Brushed in Minwax oil based red mahogany, and finished in 3 coats of sprayed poly.
The handle (not pictured) was mounted on the swivel end of caster side, i used 3/4” black pipe with floor flanges to mount.
all in all, came out great- except a few spots where tearout is visible. EVERY CROSS CUT ON THE PLY WAS RAZOR SCORED 1st, But its impossible to catch them all, or stay on that line perfectly.
Hope you enjoy or get inspired. We as woodworkers dont usually take OR HAVE the time to make something for ourselves. But this baby will last a few lifetimes.
Thanks for looking.
