OK; what threw me was the apparently different wood grains...

Looks like the drawer front to me with an added face. Good job, never thought of adding the drawer slides with the top off, sure might be easier.

The drawer front is a 7/16" thick, rabbeted half-blind. It is a solid piece of cherry. The sides are 1/2" poplar. There is no added face.
The front is not the same height as the sides, so the dovetails only go up part way on the front. Here is another view...
Hope this helps!

Each drawer is isolated from each other by a panel, so that yarn won't fall from one drawer to another. It made sense to install slides from the bottom up, after installing a panel, so that I wouldn't have to be a contortionist!

Good job, Dave. I like the joint showing in the base too.

It is a thing of beauty. I looked at her work very nice. Is it needle felting?
