This is a project I’ve been wanting to build for some time and I finally just knuckled down and built it. The plans are from woodsmithshop.com. I wanted to change up the look somewhat from the plain look that the plans depicted.
The case is made from maple plywood and poplar edge trim. The drawer boxes are made from pre finished maple 1/2” plywood and mounted with 16” blum full extension drawer slides.
The drawer fronts are made from poplar with walnut trim strips and a 45 deg. bevel around the perimeter of each drawer front.
I added a removable shelf to the top also made from maple plywood and poplar trim and I carried over the walnut trim & beveled the top & bottom of the front trim.
The case is stained with 3 coats of Minwax Gunstock stain until I got it dark it enough and then applied 4 coats of Minwax wipe on poly. The drawer fronts and shelf I left natural and finished with clear poly so they stood out from the case.
Thanks for looking!
