Make a chest of drawers or storage cabinet
Andrew Harris offers a variety of easy DIY plans for furniture that is reasonably easy to make using pine. We feature a couple of his popular projects that you can knock up without too much fuss.
The plans are in Imperial measurements, but it is easy enough to convert to metric by using the formula of 2.54 x (inch measurement) and rounding this off.
In return for his free plans, Andrew only asks that you make a donation to a local Cancer Foundation. You are free to use the plans without donating, but these organisations organisations need all the help they can get, so even a small donation goes a long way towards research. Anything you can donate will help them immensely.
