Snack Tray Cabinet
How about two, great woodworking challenges in one small package?
This project holds a pleasant surprise — literally. On the surface, you see a small, attractive chest of drawers. The narrow profile of the drawers and classic details are reminiscent of an old-fashioned spool chest. But in function, the chest is not what it appears to be. Open the top drawer and you’ll find nothing unexpected — just handy storage for coasters, the TV remote, or maybe a deck of cards. Pull out any of the four lower drawers, and you find something very different. When removed from the case, these “drawers” fold out into compact, snack trays — just the right size for your morning coffee and muffin.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
