Thanks Matt

Well I think , I have pretty much of the carcase design issues resolved.

Another issue that I would like to address is the weight of the dresser. I will be using pine for the back frame and panel, and will use 1/4 maple panel for the side. I want also to use pine for the drawer sides, backs and bottoms. Since the larger drawer will be 30” x 19” + 8 1/2” I wonder if 3/8 is fine for the sides and 1/2 for the bottoms.

To reduce the wear on the pine drawer side, I will be using slips for the drawer bottoms which will make a 1 1/8 or so sliding surface. Slips and runners will be in maple.
