Made this one for fun after i finished school in 2009.

I rescued The top from the garbagecan, No idea what sort of wood it is.
I used pine and something i swore myself not to use again in handmade stuff..mdf. Although it doesn’t look bad
combined. Didnt sand it, nor finish it. So it’s not completely finished. But for now i can live with that.
The front of the drawer is a flat sheet of mdf, where i glued the cut out pine parts on. Inside the drawer i used oak. On the 6th picture i included a drawing of a sideview. On the bottom a railsled, like the ones they use for sliding doors. And on the top a bar/stick that prevents it from tipping over as you pull it out. I would do things differently now, but i made the drawer so heavy i did it this way. It does work quite well..

As always: I love your style! Great knob you found. I like the dentil detail. It all came together for a nicely unique piece.
