I made these two identical chest of drawer units this past summer at my “Workshop in the Woods”. (in da U.P. eh!)

Since they were intended to be placed in our walk-in closet, the design is simple and functional. I started this project with rough sawn eastern white pine boards that were cut from trees felled on our property. All ten drawers are interchangeable. In order to achieve this degree of precision I made good use of my Incra MiterSled 5000. I was surprised at how many board feet of lumber was required for these ten fully dovetailed drawers.

The natural finish enhances the rather limited light in the closet.
