Ash and Walnut w/ Walnut Ply
Each chest is 12” deep x 26 3/4” wide x 24 3/4” tall
Top is 45” x 28”
14 drawers total.
I made this for my son’s birthday. He is 6. Daughter is 13 months. Wish I would have spent a little more time on the top, and wish I had time for one more coat of poly on the drawer fronts. Drawers are solid Ash w/ 100lb full extention slides so he can see all his Lego pieces. Approx total weight is 150lbs. I hope the inspiration is obvious (Lego). Pulls have a little 1/2” cove cut in the bottom of them for finger grip. Last pic is the SketchUp rendering. If anyone would like the file PM me your email and I will gladly send it.

This is awesome! This would be nice to have if only for the fact that it would keep me from stepping on Legos all the time.

I believe that your boy’s expression says it all.
Wonderful. And like dustynewt said, you’ve instilled knowledge and pride in the craft in another generation.
Good job, sir.

Thanks for all the kind comments guys. If you look at my projects page, what you see is what you get apart from the fact that I made the tool box that only shows the prototype. This is my first larger scale project, and my first atempt at M&T Joints. There are 104 M&T in the piece, so it was a good learning experience. First for drawers too. I actually built the drawers first, and then the cabinet, which I thought was kinda wierd, but it worked out in the end. Like I said in the post, I would gladly send the SketchUp file to anyone who desires it. I know the pictures are a little bad quality, but CC comments are welcome too of course, I am still very green behind the ears and would love to hear what you guys have to say.
