I just completed this 9 drawer chest for the second bedroom.

Constructed of birch, oil stain, satin wipe-on poly.

Beautiful piece, Russ!

I can’t really tell from the photos… Is there a bead cut into the drawer fronts, or is that a molding around the drawer openings in the face frame?

Thanks for the compliments everyone.

Charlie and Gary,

The beading is molding around the drawer opening and I had a devil of a time getting the gaps around the drawer fronts to be about the same. I used metal drawer slides and things move around when using those. Next project, wood drawer slides!
