The photo is of the first dry fit-up of the carcass - the draw runners are still to be made and fitted. The overall size is 880 wide x 1030 high x 450 deep. There will be 4 full width drawers and 2 half drawers at the top. The sides, legs and front drawer dividers are African ''Mahogany'' and the back rails are beech - unfortunately I have only set these back 6mm and so will need to take off a further 2 or 3 mm to give room for the backing. The sides are set 6mm into an 8mm deep rebate in the 40 x 40 legs. I've used plastic washers as spacers to give a constant movement gap.
This is my first attempt at a chest of drawers and so I'm feeling my way as I go - I'm very lazy at doing comprehensive drawings which doesn't help, I only do them for joints and corners etc.
Any suggestions for improvements at this stage would be very welcome.
