    If cypress comes my way and its in the cost range of the poplar and pine, I would use it. As a rule, I find quartersawn poplar the most enjoyable to work with hand tools but white pine is a close second with the added pleasure of a nice smell.

    On this last go around, my primary goal was to get a night table next to a bed that had some drawers to put some books. The secondary goal was to use some of these boards that are 24" and shorter. I have kept them around too long now. I used to put them to use building these boxes but things have slowed down and storage is at a premium.

    Here's Stumpy Knubs going thru an inspection of a chest of drawers. He breaks-down the drawer construction and case construction using the floating bottoms I used in the table build.

    Might make sense as he shows and tells
