I’m gearing up to make a bathroom vanity, actually my first project, so I am quite the beginner. But I have time and patience to make things right, so I look at projects as challenges and learning experiences.

I’ve studied a Shaker inspired designed from Fine Woodworking where the main construction is dovetailed side, top and bottom pieces with rails and stiles to separate the drawers. Here’s the free plan:

I’ve seen pieces where it’s more like a frame with full length legs of 8/4 (or so), rails and stiles and the ends, bottom are more like filler pieces. Like this for example:

Any thoughts on which design is easier, better, stronger, recommended?

Thanks for any/all feedback.
