Chest of Drawers Challenge

This is my very first custom made chest of drawers and I although it was a little complicated, I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and think it came out extremely well.

Whilst I have made many cupboards and cabinets and I have made drawers to fit in to cupboards or into gaps in kitchens and bedroom I have never made a complete unit from scratch.

The request came from one of my regular clients that has recently moved into an apartment having just moved out from a three bedroom house.  The brief was to make it fit into a tight space and have as much storage as possible, hence the six drawers.  I chose to make the carcass is made from 9mm Malaysian plywood, the frame from ripped down reclaimed pine floor boards and the drawers from a combination of reclaimed pine and 3mm ply from a double wardrobe I recently stripped down

Making furniture to fit in limited spaces and general storage solutions are one of the key functions of Good With Wood (Stroud) so if you need a bespoke piece of furniture or have an unusual space to fill please send me a message or email and I can come over and discuss your needs
