A friend wants me to build a couple of these chests for his children’s rooms. To contain costs, I’m considering deviating from plans that call for solid pine throughout and use 3/4 ply for the top, bottom and drawer internal support frames. I would edge the front of the frames with 1 inch of pine for aesthetics.
I would expect to get a more stable unit that would alleviate some of the expansion and contraction issues.
What are your thoughts? Any reason I shouldn’t use plywood for the frames that would not be seen? Thanks for your input.
