had a set of chest of drawers that hasn't fucked up within a year and become a janky mess?
the wooden chest of drawers in my childhood bedroom was massive and old too, that is probably the secret
Had one set for 7 years, no issues.
The other three are 2 years old and also going strong.
Got small pine bedside drawers that are also fine.
...has ended up fairly, err, janky. That said, any proper chests I've bought are still going strong. I bought a set for a tenner last year that were made in 1931 and they are still solid. Solid as a rock.
They still work fine. The split into two (top half and a bottom half) so the servants could carry them through the jungle.
The moral of the story is that they built shit properly when they oppressed the poor people of the world.
i need to source a sturdily built old chest of drawers to avert this most frustrating of problems
