This chest of drawers belonged to my wife’s grandmother. It has been constructed on a budget with minimal tools I suspect. I have nailed things together before but I decided not to reassemble with nails and dowelled insted. I did away with the negative overhang also and added 20mm 0ver the front and sides.
The sides are elm because I had some and I was a bit naughty and left the bottom drawer full of bug holes but treated with CRC.
I lacquered the finished piece after having stained with Brown Oak NGR spirit based stain.

If you muddle your way through my youtube channel or look on my ljs videos you will find the other 3 parts.
Thanks for comments and have a great day.
