A project from a plan in Popular Woodworking, ten smallish drawers for easy-to-lose tools in the workshop. Made of solid poplar, and plywood scraps (drawer bottom and back). Drawer joinery is butt joints and glue, plus a few pneumatic brads to hold things aligned. Carcase joinery is butt joints and screws (with walnut plugs). Drawer pulls are cut from walnut with a plug cutter. I don’t recommend this technique if you have a tapered plug cutter. Might work with a straight one. I couldn’t get a clean “back” to the plug; wound up sanding them all on the disc sander.
Finished with orange shellac. Turned out kind of orange (should I have been surprised?), but the poplar might brown a little bit eventually.
I have some other workshop projects to post, but they tend to stop after “works” and before “finished.”
