A friend wanted a small box for her cosmetics. She gave me the dimensions of her present container but my mind and my saws envisioned a different end. My only promise was that she would get three drawers. To keep cost low I used only scrap lumber I found around the garage. I added oak dowels for strength and decoration.
Estimated Time Investment
Weekend Project (10-20 Hours)
Type of Wood
Mahogany, poplar, oak dowels. cedar fencing for the drawer fronts.
Finished only with a lot of sanding, two coats of Danish oil, and two coats of poly. Also once it was completely dry a coating of Johnson's paste wax.
