This was a fun project. No plans to go by, just an idea I got while making a bandsaw box. The chest is approx.
48” wide, 32” tall and 22” deep. The top drawer when opened, actually has 3 different sized dovetailed drawer boxes attached to the single drawer front. The bottom drawer when opened, actually has 2 different sized dovetailed drawer boxes attached to the single drawer front. Blum Undermount slides (which was a real challenge to align on a curved surface)

The case was built with bendable plywood and veneered with Wormy Maple.

The front and back was laid up with solid Wormy Maple and the drawer fronts where cut from the front slab so the grain would flow through the drawer fronts and face frame.

Even though the handles where made from seperate Wormy Maple, I tried to pick grain that still looked like it flowed with the grain of the drawers.

Mounted on recessed caster so you can roll it around because it’s heavy as all get out and nothing to get a hold of the pick up. lol.

I still have the chest, but my daughter has laid claim to it, so it resides in her bedroom.

It was the first project I posted on lumber jocks over 3 years ago.
