Topic tags/keywords: plywood

!This is the first piece of furniture that I’ve attempted and it actually started out as a replacement kitchen cabinet when I had the carcass put together. But the need arose after someone sat on the el cheapo one my wife purchased from Target I think, and was crushed it like an eggshell. They look ok but are constructed very cheaply, but its for the teenage daughter so no great loss.
This piece is constructed of 3/4” Birch Plywood with 1/2” ply drawers and fronts all of the plywood on the front had edgebanding applied, sanded and then sprayed with a few cans of Painters Touch primer and then semi gloss black.
The top carcass (top two drawers) can be detached from the bottom unit which was designed to hold some of my daughters boots. This unit detaches in half and cuts the weight in half for transportation. It also makes it easier to carry myself and carry up and down stairs. The top unit is registered to the bottom piece by four wood dowels and is locked in place by two window sash locks I had laying around. Add some nickle satin hardware, handles and a ball catch and it complete. I wanted to put it on casters with a brake but didn’t get around to it.

Nice job but you have unwittingingly broken one the Lumberjocks commandments:


Someone will be along to complain shortly.
