I usually will start with the base of the chest and work up. If you plan to use boards like 1×4’s for the body, make sure the glue ups are straight and plumb. They tend to creep as the chest gets higher. If you do panels then plywood is your best bet, get ready for some sticker shock on plywood. Also check out the cedar closet liner at the lumber yard, makes it smell nice on the inside.
