These are a couple chest of drawers that I modeled after on from one of my suppliers. The customer loved the style but wanted it in oak. The only color available was a cappuccino finish. They also changed up the sizes a little. It was built and finished in December 2011.

It has a post and panel style sides. The bottom is arched to leave it open. I also gaped the space between the drawer fronts a little more then normal. Normally I leave a 1/4” gap, but this time I left about a 1/2” to keep with the original design. One that I did deviate from was the drawer guides. The one from my supplier had epoxy coated side mount rails. I chose to use the ball barring full extension rails.

Thanks for posting,

Garry
