I found these plans in a 1998 issue of Woodsmith magazine. It's almost exactly what my wife has been asking me to build for her.
The chest part is supposed to me around 11" deep but I'm going to make it 16" so it sits taller and has more storage. The plans call for the kickplate to be glued in a rabbet cut on the bottom of the drawer panel. This seems a bit flimsy to me so I'm going to add biscuits to the joint plus corner blocks on the inside of the miters.
I'm building it opposite of the way I usually would. I would normally start the storage box first. But I'm unsure on how I'll make the dovetail joints. I've been searching CL for the Prazi Chestmate dovetail jig but haven't found one yet.
I bought 70bf of 4/4 common cherry. at $2.15 per bf. Less 5% because I brought my lumber guy a large Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Spice coffee
He was kind of low on the cherry so it will probably take all 70bf to get what I need. Around 50bf.
Here are a few pictures. I've made progress since I took these. I've started on the drawers but not the case.
As usual I'm open to all suggestions and criticisms. That's how I learn.
