Default What I made during lockdown

Here's a bit of work done during my isolation time: a chest of drawers for my wife's knitting yarn.
It's made of cherry, with walnut handles, featuring rabbeted half-blind dovetails, full extension drawers, and pocket hole joinery.
It could have been bigger, as it is full, and she still has more yarn! Here is some of her work, if you are interested in what she makes...

excellent on the details and joinery...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Excellent work! And a lot of yarn! You’re not done yet, are you?

Sweet piece of furniture and looks like it will get plenty of use. Cherry and walnut are 2 of my favorite woods.

Hell yeh! Beautiful, Dave.
Just out of curiosity, what's the thinking behind that 'stiffener' running horizontally across the top back of the drawer front in the side view of the drawer?

Isn't that the original thickness of the front board where there are no dovetails?
