The number and location of drawers is pure design. I also like to challenge myself and add unique elements to each furniture piece I create. I had always enclosed the drawers behind cabinet doors, so wanted to try something different. Thanks for asking!
Makes sense, thanks. Thought perhaps it had to do with the items you envisioned being stored in the drawers or someting.
Sharing details like these are the exact reason how we learn from each other and all grow as designers and woodworkers
