I' ve build a bureau around a collection of different drawers found in the trash, at grandma's attic, ...

Step 1: Pine Carcass

After arranging the different drawers and making a plan, I started building a carcass out of pine laths. Like that it doesn't get to heavy in total.

Step 2: Wooden Strips

Following that I added beech (more sturdy then pine) wooden strips (each individual) to balance the heights and widths of the single drawers.

Step 3: Acacia Boisage

The last step was building the boisage out of old acacia planks. After planing and cropping I' ve added them to the carcass. Et voil√°, the drawers were oficially been pimped! :)
