just came across this site and it looks awesome! I am fairly new to woodworking, I’ve built a few bookshelves, work benches, and display cases. I’d like to step up a little, with a new baby boy due in January, I want to start making some furniture for him. I’ve never attempted anything as complex as an armoire, but that’s what my wife would like me to make first. I’m having trouble finding a good plan for one. I’m a little afraid of “free handing” it with crude and elementary drawings, which is all I can come up with. I’m considering making a three drawer dresser as one unit and then making the wardrobe on top as a second separate unit. My hang up is trying to find a decent plan for the dresser. I need to get started cutting wood fairly quick, as baby boy is arriving in a few months. Any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you! I’ll try and search for some there. I’m crazy busy at work lately, but I’m anxious to start work on our armoire. Starting this new project will require me to learn new skills and I’m excited to get things going on it!

Making it in two pieces is a good idea,it will be much easier to move
