Drawer casket



 This is a remarkable design of a drawer casket. Behind two doors it contains three drawers. The casket is richly ornamented with floral motifs in its fretwork and overlays. By combining different types of wood, finishes and fabrics many different types of visual effects can be achieved.   

 This casket was originally conceived as a box to store cigars, instead of drawers it had shelves to place the cigars, however since I prefer you not to smoke I have transformed it into a drawer casket. I am sure this way you will enjoy it more and with better health.

 For this project a particularly rich hardware is recommended. You can find an excellent collection of good hardware at the Look in the attic company site, not only bail pulls, but hinges, door knobs and everything else. Another good site is The house of antique hardware. Depending on how much you scale up or down your model you will need bigger or smaller hardware, take this into account when ordering the hardware. It is probably better to order the hardware when you have the plans scaled at the size you are going to work.

The pattern is based on an old Italian design from the beginning of the XX century. It has been completely redrawn in the computer using the most advanced graphics techniques.

  The pattern is designed to make the drawer casket with 3/16 inches wood or 5 mm wood and some thin wood for the overlays, but of course it can be resized at will. This table gives the measures of the casket depending on the wood thickness you use:


  Height Width Depth
3/16 inches wood 11.5 in. 16.6 in. 14 in.
1/4 inches wood 15.4 in. 22.1 in. 18.7 in.
5 mm. wood 30.5 cm. 44.3 cm. 37.5 cm.
6 mm. wood 36.6 cm. 53.1 cm. 45 cm.
8 mm. wood 49 cm. 70.9 cm. 60 cm.
