24 particle board drawers. I built one for a friend of mine and when he moved he dropped the entire thing. Amazingly none of the drawers broke. We now have four of these. Two in the garage and two in the house. The case is 3/4 ply and in between the drawers is 1/8 hardboard.

I have made a few for crafting too. My grandfather used to make them and my mom has one for her knitting stuff.

Nice job!
I bought a bunch of bins from mcfeely’s a while back when they were on sale and something like this could make a nice home for them. :-)

Roer, I cut the particle board sheet into strips and from those I got a bunch of fronts, backs, sides and bottoms. Then it is just a matter of gluing and alot of brads. For the fronts I used a 1” hole saw on my drill press and cut out semi-circles then cut out the middle with a bandsaw. I suppose you could do the whole thing with a bandsaw but I got my bandsaw after doing the hole saw thing. Hope that helps.

I really like this design. My wife needs some of these for her sewing business. Could you let us know the overall dimensions
