This is a chest of drawers made for a neighbor.
It is made from 3/4 plywood. the drawers are made from half inch plywood with 3/4 ply face. The drawer bottoms and the back are made from 1/4 ply. The legs are stock 1 by 4 pine plained and glued together then cut on the table saw. (I could not find a stock or standard foot that I liked.)

Sorry for the crooked pictures. In did this from a tablet and I do not have it figured out yet.

I see your link takes you to a department store so I thought I’d ask if you done from purchased plans? I’ve found good dresser plans are hard as hell to find!

That’s a nice simple chest of drawers. Looks great and will probably last generations. From your description it would be cheap enough to build several without breaking her bank!

Edwardnorton: Glad you like it. The plans are my own but I did get many of the design ideas from books that I have. I think it most closely resembles the Shaker style. I have added a snapshot of one of my working drawings that I used. You’ll notice the drawing has two top drawers but I changed that feature on the fly to one solid drawer.

Beautiful work.The chest of drawers is as integral to any home as is any other piece of furniture.Your selection of furniture has an effect on the entire look of your house or room. Thus, it is very important to select the right furniture that goes well with your overall decoration and house.
