How to Make an Apothecary Chest of Drawers

This little chest is made of sapele and soft maple. The drawers are joined using a double dado or half blind lock joint. Overall the dimensions are about 14″ wide, 18″ tall, and 6″ deep. The box was made to hold watches and each drawer can hold two watches on soft cushion. I finished the chest with a few coats of danish oil after sanding everything up to 320 grit.

Let me know what you think! Thanks for watching.

Making a Large Apothecary Cabinet

This is my largest project to date. It’s an apothecary style cabinet that has 21 drawers and 7 shoes cubbies. The drawers are roughly 8″ x 8″ x 10.5″. Each row of drawer fronts came from the same piece of sapele giving the front of the cabinet a nice continuous and book matched grain pattern. The outer casework is made of book matched quarter sawn sapele while the dividers are made of laminated pine panels with 3/4″ thick sapele edge banding.

The drawers are constructed using a half blind lock joint for the front joints and a housing joint for the back piece. If you want to see how to make the half blind lock joint, check out this video:
