I made this in 2001 per plans purchased from The New Yankee Workshop. It was made from Cherry purchased from a local farmer from Utica, Ohio. The boards all came from the same tree and it was finished with Tung Oil (several coats I recall). The legs are tappered on the interior sides down to 3/4 of an inch. The drawers were not dovetailed I’m now ashamed to say, but I used a lock rabbit joint on the table saw. Just getting around to posting a few things after 12 years, but gald I did.

Looks nice! I like lock rabbet joints. Fast and easy. By the time I remember how to use my dovetail jig, I have a completed drawer.
