The further into the chest of drawers project I get, the more I realize how much the stepped front complicates construction. From a design perspective, it didn't seem like this build would be dramatically different than a standard chest, but boy was I wrong. In this episode, I go through the process of fitting the lower drawer blades, or dividers. Normally, you would just need one blade between each drawer, but the steps in the front face required me to double these up. My choice of sliding dovetails also created an additional complication in both positioning the dovetails, and also marking the sockets from the tails. But with a little creativity, and perhaps luck, I managed to complete the task without any major issues.
