One of my first projects on the MPCNC. And, oh, a fantastic Christmas gift as well. Made entirely with red oak. There are 5 1/4" dowels in the rear that hold the the box together. Two of the dowels double as hinge pins for the drawers.
I wish I could tell you. Pieces with a lot of deep pocketing like the top and the drawers took the most at ~1.5 hours each. But with all of the re-cuts and redesign I have no idea how long the actual cut time was. Let’s just say that I’m glad I used cheap oak boards from home depot because as many extras were required!
I ran out of time so I couldn’t get too fancy. It’s a sanded to 400 grit to help prevent the end grain from acting like a sponge and soaking up a ton of stain. After sanding a light coat of cherry stain and paste wax was all for finish.
