I’m building a tall dresser for loml and am trying to figure out a good sequence for assembling, clamping and gluing up the side panels, face frame and back panel and still have it come out square.
My thought was to screw the back panel (3/8” plywood) into the rabbets along the back edge of the side panels. That will give me a three-sided standing assembly. Then I would add internal web framing to give it some stability. Then the FF, then the base panel, then drawers, drawer fronts, and the top.
If the back panel and side panel idea will work, what do you use to hold it upright and square while you’re drilling and screwing?
How do you more experienced LJ’s do these larger jobs?
