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.
