Cherry chest of drawers

author-gravatar rrich1 Jan 21, 2021

Made this for my youngest child. Made from the wood whisperer guild plans. It is made from cherry and cherry plywood. The drawer construction is made of rabbet dovetails. Mortise and tenon construction make up the frame assembly. The chamfer on the underside of the top was made by hand with planes. 

You can see an error I made when I did the drawers. The plan was for the bottom to be a 1/2" from the bottom to allow the guides. Well I cut them 1/4" from the bottom. I had to fill the dados and then recut the grooves. Came out really well a d no one will ever know

Fantastic grain selection for the drawer fronts! Will you be making the rest of the set?

Oh - Model T?

At some point I will be making a bed. My son is 2 and still in his crib for a while. He shares a room with his brother and already has a night stand in there. 

Also it's a '31 ford model AA. Check my instagram @r2_woodworking for more pics and the story behind it.
