this is a 8 drawer chest fot holding cross stitch thread, and suplies for her hobby.
The sides are mdf and the drawers are made out of whatever was laying around in the shop. The photo dosent show it but the top 6 drawers have 3 dividers each to keep her thread organized. I gave it to her and she painted it up. It helps to build for the wife so she dosent mind me being in the shop so much.

I can relate well to the “cover” of being in the shop for “productive” time by building something my wife finds useful around the house. It just eases the entire process.

For some reason the cost of lumber is more easily justified when I attach it to a project.

Very nice project.

Great idea Bryan. I guess she attached decals and identifiers to the drawer fronts.

Thanks everyone. She did apreciate it. She added little wodden spools for the drawer nobs and some charms that are craft related.
