Wide Camp Dresser

Newest Video! I love creating, here's what I'm up to!

This was an easy build...until I got to the drawers. This was my first time building drawers and they took FOREVER to get right. I did not account for the extra width that the paint would add, so my drawers that once fit did not after I had it painted. Ended up sanding it all down and starting over. Now I know to put the slides on, then paint around them. I added height to the are with the baskets to accommodate their size as well as clear an outlet behind the dresser. The plans do not have the top cover the back panel, so I moved it back slightly to cover the edge. This made the front look too shallow, so I added 1/2 round to the upper edge.
