Saw this dresser on LJ earlier and my wife said to make this for her. I cannot remember the gents name, but he was kind enough to put the detailed plans in his posting. Other than the support inner frame which is plywood, the outer frame is aspen, white, soft and very workable wood. Drawer fronts are yellow pine. All joints are glued and joined with pocket screws. My wife of 53 years chose the color which is Italian Sage. It is slightly more green than the picture shows. Took awhile to make this as my back went out in the middle of construction. Age is such a beautiful thing. All the drawers and drawer pulls are square as I made two jigs to ensure everything lined up. The dolly is a real help moving this thing around so the vehicle can use the garage. I also made four temp feet to keep the bottom trim from being beat up and allow painting . Last two pics are of the dresser in place and loaded up.
