My wife wanted to replace her cheap storage bin in the bathroom. We decided on this. I have to do one of those honey-do projects every now and then to justify new tools. I made this from pine to match the magazine rack above it I made a while back. I used my new dovetail jig to mae through dovetails on the corners and half blind dovetails on the drawers. I used golden pecan stain, I sprayed 2 coats of satin poly and hand wiped 2 more coats on the visible parts. Then hit it with Renaisance wax. This was a fun little project.

These look real nice, Bill. It looks like they will serve their purpose well.

At first I wasn’t sure, but in the last picture it looks really good with the finish and all. Great joinery.
