The chest may be constructed of various hardwoods. Mixing and matching the woods for the top, sides, drawer fronts, knobs and pegs will give a wide variety of interesting looks. Cabinet tops are joined to the sides using many finely made dovetailed joints. Dowel pegs may be interspaced between the dovetails as a design accent. Cabinet sides and tops are matched using butterfly joints. Drawer insides are made of high quality basswood or poplar for stability. Drawer bottoms are made of basswood, poplar or aromatic red cedar to repel moths. All surfaces, inside and out are finely sanded. Drawers are made to perfection with an almost airtight fit. Drawer insides have no finish in order not to damage contents.

Depth of Cabinet Vs. Drawer Capacity:

Cabinets may be made any depth (Measured front to back) from 12" up to a maximum of 18". The greater the depth, the greater the drawer capacity will be. Typically 8 - 9 sleeved comics will fit per inch.

In order to figure capacity, subtract 1.43" from the overall outside cabinet depth then multiply by 8. That should give you a close estimate for the number of comics per drawer.
