Map drawer for Erin

Submitted by Quartney on Fri, 01/04/2013 - 13:16

My husband needed a place to store his stuff--maps, yes, but also cords, hard drives, and other things he didn't want the kids to get into. I took the coffee table plan, essentially cut it in half, then raised it up to fit four drawers. The best part was that I only made three drawers--the bottom one is extra-tall to fit his extra-tall stuff, but it has false drawer fronts. I also opted to skip the caster wheels.

It looks wonderful. I have not yet attempted a project with drawers, are they difficult to get right?

Thank you! Well, I've made one project with drawers that was fairly straightforward, and these drawers were more difficult, so I can't really say how hard drawers are! Like everyone advises, you have to make sure the drawer box is square ...
