This is from a plan in Woodsmith. The original had Maple drawers with a cherry frame. I chose my material based on what scrap I had laying around.

I helped a student make one of these 8-10 years ago, I needed a similar product since I took a trip down memory lane. Miters can prove as tricky if not trickier than other joints.

I used titebond 2 and minwax poly. I waxed the drawer supports to ease their travel.

Awesome, and miles ahead of even the most expensive plastic one. Splined rounded corners isn’t something you see every day either, nice job.

Thanks for posting.

Nice looking project. The only problem with them is they become full of student papers that need graded. I always loved that part of the job.

Nicely done.

Now, you need to label them. I’d suggest
1: Ingress (in)

2: Egress (out)

3: Digress (hold until I get around to it…)

That’s a whole world more attractive than those cheap metal or plastic ones. I’ve used splines on numerous boxes with square corners in the past. They look exceptional on those round corners. Something I’ll remember.

Have your say...
