Very nice! That’s a lot of drawers. I bet you were glad to get all of them done.

Beautiful piece Steven. I’ve seen plans for a lingerie chest similar to this at PlansNow website. I like the size proportions. Rosewood is an excellent choice.

Nice job. Did you do all the dove tails by hand?

I like the drawer pulls.

That is a gorgeous piece that you built. I really like the color and grain of the rosewood. With that many drawers I am sure that the thrill of cutting the dovetails wore off rather quickly. :)

Well done.

Thank you all for the comments, sorry I did not make the dovetails by hand used a Leigh. The wood I bought in South Africa about 10 years ago so the price is not relevant(cannot even remember maybe 50c b/f.)
Still have about 50ft left.
No the bottom space is wasted, only realized after the job was done that it could have been a concealed/hidden drawer.
