Free Plan: Cherry Chest of Drawers
A chest of drawers is one of the most useful pieces of furniture out there, but the anatomy can be tricky. Christian Becksvoort makes the construction easy with smart solutions to cutting dadoes, dovetails, and adding a smooth runner system for the drawers.
By the way, all the techniques used in this project can be applied to Becksvoort’s large Shaker cupboard in Fine Woodworking #219. That project incorporates many of these construction methods and adds a few. You can also learn to apply a face frame, how to build and fit Shaker doors, and fit your drawers.
