This project is a Chest of Drawers for my Grandson.
It is constructed of Reclaimed Antique Heart Pine which is predominately vertical grain.
It features raised panel sides and doors. The piece has approximately 16.5 cubic feet of storage in the 8 drawers. The drawers are mounted on full extension slides with a capacity to hold up to 300 lbs when fully extended. An inner frame was constructed of 6/4 quarter sawn red oak framing. The piece was made to accommodate changes in the interior configuration as the inner frame can be removed with the top, reconfigured, and slid back into the case. Doors were installed to add for security and style. The doors prevent tip over in the event the child climbs up the opened drawers.
Rugged, refined, and unique. This project was constructed using reclaimed lumber from the F.W. Poe Plant of Burlington Mills in Greenville SC. The mill was built in 1896 at a cost of around $1,000,000.00. The mill was closed in 1977 and stood empty until 2003 when it was burned to the ground. The lumber used in this project is the only known lumber to be salvaged before the site caught fire.
