How do you build a built in dresser? I want to build this dresser into a new wall space?

Can you build a carcase with 1/2 plywood? Then finish nail pine boards over the plywood?

Ply carcase would be ok but I’d suggest pocket screws from the ply into the pine from behind.

-- Backer boards, stop blocks, build oversized, and never buy a hand plane--

Pick up the latest issue of Fine Woodworking. There is a good article about building a built-in.

They use plywood for the dividers and nail/glue most of the face on. I agree with Rance though, that you might consider pocket screws as a good option.

Have your say...
