That’s 8 drawers!

Just kidding, but made you look. Nice project. I was going to ask you what kind of joinery you used to attach the web frames to the sides.

Thanks, and again – well done!

Very nice and a good combination of colour
Sounds as if it is a nice piece of joinery.

Not a fan of painted objects , but there are exceptions !! This is beautiful , not only in design , but the color scheme as well. Great photography really brings this to life : )

Beautiful! Are the outlines of the dovetails apparent through the paint?

Thank you all!

Pintodeluxe- The divider frames are dovetailed in the sides of the case. I’ve added a link above to my blog posts about the build and you can see the dovetails in a few of the pictures.

Bonobo- No, the dovetails are not visible right now, but with time and seasonal movement they should start to show through. That’s actually why I chose to use through dovetails in the case rather than halfblinds.
