This piece is very similar to the Lowboy. The one piece, 10” wide sides are glued long grain to long grain to the legs, with biscuits. The drawer dividers are dovetailed to the front leg posts. The drawers are rabbeted half blind, and through dovetail contruction. The top is bookmatched. The secondary wood is Aspen, from Lowe’s. The plywood drawer bottoms are also Aspen. This wood is becoming my favorite for drawers, due to the fact that the plywood matches the sides, and are very inexpensive. This is also my first project using gel stain.
