Made from 3/4 pine, 1/2 drawers. Overall it is 16×6x8tall. Daughter has limited space, so the box takes up little room. Drawer guides are inserted into the sides of the box and the drawers have 3/4 in grooves on which to slide. Not my favorite draw arrangement, but went with the plans. Box is glued, screwed, plugged. Used darker pine for contrast in the plugs and 3/4×1/4 cherry for the feet, again for contrast. added additional back to the drawers to cover the mounting holes drilled for access. The drawers were way too small to get to mounting screws. Finished with no stain, 2 coats of clear shellac, 2 coats of rattle-can satin lacquer. One of the small drawers was divided into 1/4s. Thanks for lookin.
