This is the last piece I made I came up with the design inspired by a shaker chimney cupboard that I saw. It is built completely out of solid maple. I used a table saw jig to cut the tails on the drawer then the pins were cut by hand. It is all constructed with mortise and tenon and dovetail joinery. I use minwax provencal stain and tried and true varnish oil, and I also used shellac for the bottom of the drawers which were finished separately. Cheers

Very nice! I love making something that you can stand back and say no mechanical fasteners were used here, just wood and glue. I also enjoy seeing the awe in peoples faces when you tell them that :p. It takes a lot more time but the structure and appearance do nothing but benefit from the work you put into it, great job!

Thats is so true, I like to use the least fasteners possible. Its also why I make my own furniture because I want it solid and to last generations hopefully! Thanks for commenting
