Making a Large Apothecary Cabinet

This is my largest project to date. It’s an apothecary style cabinet that has 21 drawers and 7 shoes cubbies. The drawers are roughly 8″ x 8″ x 10.5″. Each row of drawer fronts came from the same piece of sapele giving the front of the cabinet a nice continuous and book matched grain pattern. The outer casework is made of book matched quarter sawn sapele while the dividers are made of laminated pine panels with 3/4″ thick sapele edge banding.

The drawers are constructed using a half blind lock joint for the front joints and a housing joint for the back piece. If you want to see how to make the half blind lock joint, check out this video:

My Website:

My name is Matt Estlea, I’m a 22 year old Woodworker from Basingstoke in England and my aim is to make your woodworking less s***.

I come from 5 years tuition at Rycotewood Furniture Centre and 4 years experience working at Axminster Tools and Machinery where I still currently work on weekends. During the week, I film woodworking projects, tutorials, reviews and a viewer favourite ‘Tool Duel’ where I compare two cometitive manufacturers tools against one another to find out which is best.

I like to have a laugh and my videos are quite fast paced BUT you will learn a lot, I assure you.

Lets go make a mess.



Paul Spriggs | Furniture Maker at The Gloucestershire Guild Of Craftsmen

Paul Spriggs:
“As an architectural student I wrote a dissertation on Ernest Gimson, a disciple of William Morris who lived and worked at Sapperton near Cirencester around a century ago. His work was already familiar to me through a family connection. His chairs interested me; I thought of them as a starting point for my own designs, for which I was sure there was a market. I never set out to copy his work, but rather to absorb the spirit of it and make my own stamp, with chairs and other furniture.

I have been a maker for over 30 years now and never regretted the change from architecture. I work in English hardwoods, ash and oak mainly, and harvest rushes for the chairs myself. In design and execution I try to apply that attention to detail that makes the work that bit special.

My work has been featured in various publications. It is mostly domestic, although I have helped furnish various churches, a cathedral and museums.”

How to Ship Furniture

A major detail of custom furniture making that is often overlooked is shipping. I make pieces for clients all over the states and occasionally overseas. It very important after weeks of working on a piece of fine furniture that it arrives safely and undamaged to the client. There are lots of ways to wrap, box and ship furniture but I typically use 2 methods based on size to deliver my work. Make sure to read more about my shipping process in the How to Ship Furniture blog article –
