When it comes to making the cabinet, though, the thought of having to build a dozen drawers can be a little overwhelming. In this woodworking plan from Woodsmith magazine, we simplified the task of making multiple drawers using a straightforward technique of locking rabbets. In fact, the whole cabinet is a series of rabbets and dadoes.

Overall dimensions are 39-1/2" W x 13" D x 43-3/4" H. This project appeared in Woodsmith magazine No. 165.
