That s a great looking dresser, thanks for the insight. Do the gaps appear around all the drawers or only the middle ones? How tall is the case?

The case is probably around 50” tall.

When the season changes to humid weather, the gaps appears towards the middle stretchers (and then the gaps go away once all the wood normalizes I think). I think the case sides bow every so slightly. The plans I was working off of called for dados along with the front 2-3” being a sliding dovetail, but I ignored that thinking dados would work fine. Well, its not the end of the world— so far it hasn’t fallen apart.
