Finally finished, my elm chest. This was almost ready, when my next project took over (the oak credenza). This is a shameless amateur copy Koivusipila’s design (Finnish pro woodworker), to replace an IKEA chest from our children’s room (last time I closed the drawers on that, I had to kick them to get them to close. Now they won’t open, so its safe to say it was time…).
I used Blum’s soft close drawer slides, but made the drawers myself. That was quite intimidating for a first timer, since there was about 1-1,5 mm tolerance I had to meet… all went well, and the chest looks good to me. And weights a ton. Again, I used Osmo to finish this. My new favorite.
