Courtesy of Ana White plans. Had to remove a drawer to fit the space.

Lessons learned: Use wood conditioner before staining and docile check measurements. I added the face frames to cover mine error of the drawers being too small height wise. I wish I would have added extra space for drawer pulls but I couldn’t find any 10-12” pulls locally only 14”+.

Not bad for my third project with limited tools (Circular Saw, Hammer, Drills, Sander)

Great job. Skill makes the craftsman not the tools. Ana is awesome, just need to get her to join us over here.

Very beautiful work of craftsmanship. Super build. What did you use for stain and finish. Thanks for sharing.

Miniwax Dark Walnut and Rustoleum semi gloss polyurethane.

I forgot to condition it but I put 2 coats of stain and 3 coats of polyurethane with those being thick as possible on top (kids). One day I’ll try nicer wood than pine.

Looks great. Like the frames on the drawers and the finish. Well done!
