Here is the plan for the 6 drawer dresser.
Rabbeting the back legs for the rear plywood panels. I chose plywood over solid wood for some dimensional stability.
The rabbets are stopped 1-1/2” from the bottom of the legs to match the location of the side rails.
Mortising for pegs at the side rail locations.
Mortising for pegs at the front rail location.
Panels were glued up in two stages – first two pairs of 3/4” boards were joined. Then those 10” wide panels were planed to 1/2” while they would still fit in the planner. Finally, the two 10” panels were joined with a single joint down the middle.
Planing some stock for the webbing / drawer supports.
Still a lot of lumber to go through! I figure I will get a whole bedroom set from this stock.
Next up is cutting the arches on the bottom side rails, sanding parts for the side assemblies, staining the side panels, and side assembly glueup.
