With our second child on the way, we needed to upgrade my 2 year old from the changetable / dresser to a dedicated dresser for her clothes. Time was an issue so there was no plan to do any fine woodwork. This would be a plywood and paint affair.
Constructed mainly of 3/4” birch plywood with biscuit joints. The drawer boxes are 1/2’ baltic birch with locking rabbet joints and standard kitchen slides. The top has an ogee profile routed into the hardwood edging. Drawer knobs are from Lee Valley. The back of the dresser is some really horrible 1/4” import plywood from the local big box.
Primed and painted. Really happy with the paint job actually, it has a very smooth finish with no brush marks. In hindsight I think I should have made the reveal between drawers smaller. I used 1/8” but I find it is too big especially since they are plywood faces and I don’t need to worry about seasonal movement.
