Build a classic chest of drawers with a variety of dovetail joinery and Shaker-inspired elements. Included are methods for cutting dovetails with a combination of hand and power tools, cutting sliding dovetail slots accurately, and attaching molding with dovetailed keys, a method that allows the chest to shrink and expand with changes in humidity. Careful grain-matching and graduated drawers distinguish the piece.
