Simple sleek design, my 2nd ever commission for furniture. Client wanted a very simple contemporary looking dresser in oak. He showed me a couple pictures from a furniture showroom catalogue and this is my interpretation of what he wanted. Very simple 3/4 oak plywood casework, 1/4” ply back. All exposed plywood edges were edge banded in iron on veneer. Drawer boxes are 1/2’ birch ply.

Very clean contemporary piece, well done.

I am curious—you say 3/4” and 1/4” plywood. Is this still available? I thought the “nominal” thickness was now always 23/32” for former 3/4” etc. I am drawing up some cabinets with drawers myself, and these dimensions drive me crazy.

Also, are those metal drawer slides? On the bottom? Are those hard to install?

I’m pretty sure it was 23/32nds. I just call it 3/4 out of habbit. They were metal drawer giides, just the basic ones from that store with the big orange sign. Fairly easy to install, key is to install all the drawer boxes and glides before attaching the drawer fronts. That makes it easy to perfectly line up the fronts.

Simple design but really looks great and well crafted. Like the wood choice and handles. I’m sure client was satisfied. Great job!

Oh, OK! I did forget that there are separate drawer fronts… the cabinet I am designing doesn’t have that… I will probably use wooden rails on the sides though.

Anyway, thanks for the answer!
