The chest is now complete.

It took a while to get the right colour with the water based stain but I think I got it in the end. Two coats of stain and two coats of 'Mid Brown' furniture wax. A couple of people have mentioned that I must have had some sort of woodworking training to produce this sort of work but I can assure you that this is completely within the grasp of most hobbyists. If you can use basic hand tools and have a router you can make this box. Believe me, I am not a skilled carpenter.I reckon in total the box took approx 35hours and cost in the region of £40 ($60).


  1. nice job on the three drawer chest I tried building one of those a year or so back but couldn't make it work.Finally got fed-up and quit.keep up the good work I'll be looking forward to future projects.

  2. Nice work! I can't seem to send email to you. How else can I contact you which questions?

  3. I love the idea of the third drawer. I am in the process of looking for ideas on a vanity for my grand daughter and think this one will work. a small three drawer end and legs for the other side.
