I built this dresser ,i guess you would call it, into my son’s closet to help organize it. The top and frame pieces are 3/4 red oak plywood, the drawer fronts are 1/4 sawn white oak, handles are shop made from walnut and all other interior parts are poplar. My house was built in 1964 so there was not one plumb, square or straight cut on any wall, which led to a lot of frustrated trips in and out of the house. I should have given the drawers more play as the humidity makes them stick a bit in the summer.

Looks very nice and clearly the product of many hours of work. Did you use a jig to make the through dovetails on the drawers?
