Below is a side view of the drawers. There are 7 large drawers and 2 half drawers. I figured I will use the half drawers for small things like the rings to go on charms and such.
I divided out the drawers. I did leave two of the drawers undivided until I determine how small they need to be divided.
The unit is 12x12x12 inches. That made for less cutting initially. :) Of course I covered it in zebra print. I am still contemplating putting legs on it so it does not rest on the table. I did add extra layers of chipboard on the bottom.
The box is a basic construction box with out a front. I then doubled up strips of chipboard in order to have a ledge for the drawer shelves to sit on I glued these two pieces together. And put one pair on each side to create a ledge for the shelf to sit on.
This is what the inside of the unit looked like when I was finished. I did wrap construction strips around the edge to ensure they stayed together.
The doubling up on the chipboard allowed for extra stability for the shelves which will hold the drawers. The drawers were made a little smaller than 12x12 so they would fit in. I believe I cut them about 11 5/8 x 11 3/8. The width was a little narrower because of the doubled chipboard pieces used as support for the ledges.
Here are some more views
The drawers are not closed fully as I painted the fronts.
