Wow! That’s beautiful. I’d love to know more about the construction. I’ve made some furniture, but I don’t really know a lot about techniques used for joinery.

This piece was fairly simple. The only internal frame structure was 2 stretchers front and back at the top and the bottom, both 3” and pocketed holed. The rest was standard cabinet inset construction. The blum runners are quick and adjustable. I knew the drawers would have to hold some weight and i wanted them to glide smoothly. After working in a cabinet shop for the last 3 years, ive gained an appreciation for blum, i wouldnt use them in certain situations where a more elegant solution is warranted.

The drawers are screwed from the back of the drawer box and all the details are just overlaid trim.
