I am looking for a good book on constructing case goods such as dressers and credenzas.

I build mid century furniture for my house and want to move up to bigger projects. I want to make sure I have the concepts right in terms of backs and getting interior pieces assembled correctly (considering seasonal movement). I have done a fair bit of research but a reference in the shop is helpful.

Andy Rae’s book on furniture and cabinet construction is
good, if a little broad.

“Practical Design Solutions and Strategies” by FWW
is useful.
