My daughter needed a big dresser, so this just happened in my shop. Again, the carcass is through dovetailed and all the dividers use sliding dovetails glued at the front and float in dadoes at the back.

looks great. Were the through dovetails cut by hand? that looks like an awfully deep dresser to use any normal jig with…

Great work, welcome to LumberJocks!

I used a Leigh dovetail jig. works for up to 24 inch wide boards. I think the dresser is about 19 inches deep.
