A lot of slides and drawers ! I had to use some jigs.
(muchos rieles y cajones ! Tuve que usar plantillas )
Main frame assembly is the most important step; from here, it depends precission and smooth operation of drawers, doors and front aligment.
El ensamble del marco frontal es el paso más importante del proyecto; de él depende la precisión, suavidad de funcionamiento de cajones, puertas y la alineación de todos los elementos frontales.

Drawings,measures, and assembly process by Rsantos

Art Decor kitsch style drawer chest is made using MDF, and melaminic particle boards.

Jointning system is "pocket hole", using self taping, washer head,coarse thread screws, as well as some useful jigs from Kregtools.

Paints and stains are solvent based, applied with HVLP spray gun. Sometimes I had to use retardant thinner for wood patterns effect.

Do you think you could have built this using two identical face frames and placing hard wood drawer runners between them? Buying all those drawer slides had to set you back some and loosing an inch on each drawer volume?

Para los Shaker y su manera de diseñar y resolver sus planteamientos de diseño, toda mi admiración.
