This is a chest of drawers I built for myself. It’s a very heavy unit made from an Australian hardwood ‘Victorian Ash’. It measures approximately 1000mm wide x 820mm high x 500mm deep.

The case construction has half blind dovetails joining the solid side panels to the top panel.

The four dovetailed drawers are graduated in height. The top drawer is 140mm tall, then 150mm, 160mm and finally the lower drawer is 170mm tall.

Instead of having the drawer faces finish flush with the case sides and divider rails, I opted to push the drawers in by 5mm. This gave the front of the piece some depth and interest.

The drawer pulls/handles are ‘NUZAMAS Matt Black Cabinet Door Handles‘ from Amazon.
