This dresser is an elegant, easy-to-build addition to any bedroom. The secret is a simple plywood case for the drawers.
Even though this dresser is a large project, don’t let its size intimidate you — it’s surprisingly easy to build. Basically, the frame of the dresser consists of two end panels joined by a couple of long stretchers. Then, a case built from a single sheet of plywood slides right inside the frame. The design features thick corner posts, solid-wood end panels and top, half-blind dovetails, and a curved front stretcher at the bottom.

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.
