Walnut and Maple case of drawers
This project began has a doodle. I wanted to see if I could draw a unique drawer layout. The doodle turned into a sketch and the sketch into a SketchUp model. I realized that it only takes three drawer divider layouts to build any size case. The book matched drawer faces took a lot of planning to fit into two-dimensional layout.
Lots of secondary woods. Maple for drawer side, Pine for drawer bottoms, Alder for backs, Cottonwood for case back
Twenty drawers, each had to be fitted into its own compartment. I really like the way the grain cross through all the drawer fronts

The vertical drawers are just deep. The bottoms are lined with velour.
Awesome piece. I like maple and walnut together. Grain matching across all the drawers is a really nice touch.
Wow, this is beautiful. Are the "vertical" drawers just deep, or is there something else going on inside?
