It is highly important to figure out a place where this plastic chest of drawers will go in your house and thus taking a measurement for the same would be a great idea. It is highly advisable to put the plastic drawers away from the radiator and fireplaces. It is better to go for the designs that have an adjustable feet, which can probably help in getting the right fit on the floor and the wobbling can be easily taken care off, rather than putting a wedge under the table.
The amount of labour required is also very costly, and modern hand made pieces reflect this in their price. The whole way an antique or hand made piece is constructed is totally different from the modern particle board unit with their plastic and metal fixings that keep the thing together. In an antique unit, the joints are accurately hand cut and glued or pegged together which results in a much stronger joint. The whole unit is much stronger, longer lasting and more visually pleasing.
Many people prefer to buy antiques for their own use, in order to get a good standard of manufacture for a reasonable price. Even furniture from the first half of the 20th century, before the use of particle board became widespread, can be of good quality and good value.
