Another fun project for my good friends at the 1910 craftsman house. They wanted more storage in the master bath so this is what we came up with. Left and right cabs have 3 drawers while the center one has 1 drawer and 2 doors. Made with clear mix grain Douglas fir they fit in with the rest of the house like they were there from day 1. These are the sweetest people, since I have worked for them on the other projects they are family now. They tell me what they want and I get to design some fun details. Limback lumber in Seattle has the best CMG in town and lets me take my time picking the boards so one long board makes the complete face, drawers and face frame and or doors. The box is made of 2 sided VG fir ply, the tops 5/4 VG fir and the feet (my favorite) from CMG fir. I had just started working for the carpenters union swing shift job so most of this build was done from 12AM to 4AM. Took about 3 weeks from start to finish. So glad to have my Festool tools as the track saw, Domino, MFT table and Rotex 150 made for quick and dust free work. Broke down the ply with the track saw, used the MFT to kerf the dados then the 1400 to complete the rest of the dado, no splintering the grain what so ever. The Domino for morticing the face frames and a cool trick to use the mahogany dominos to pin the drawers front and backs together, really looks cool to see the mahogany dominos in the maple drawer sides. Custom stain from the rest of the house with 4 coats of HD poly. I had fun making the feet and they stand proud of the cases by 1/4”. Hope you like them!
