DIY Dresser Video - How to build a dresser
Check out this how to build a dresser video! I was so proud of how this project came out. Mainly because it was a gift for my daughter. I had never tried to build a DIY dresser before and I had never built recessed drawers. So I was a little nervous going into the project but it was something that I wanted to attempt. I watched a few videos online to get a grasp of how to go about building the dresser, then jumped right in. In the end, it turned out to be a farmhouse glam or modern glam style dresser. Not to blow my own horn, but I think this is one of the more beautiful pieces I have made. A lot of my furniture has been farmhouse, rustic style. But this piece is more modern, contemporary style. The glass drawer pulls really sets it off in my opinion. If you are looking to build a similar dresser or chest of drawers, check out the video below.
This dresser features 7 full extension drawers. The dresser measures 38 inches tall, 18 inches deep and 61 1/2 inches long. The supplies used to build this project include: 2 sheets of 4’ x 8’ 3/4” sanded birch plywood. 1 sheet of 1/4” plywood. One 2x8x8’. Three 1x6x10’. 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. Wood glue. Seven pair of full extension ball bearing drawer slides. 20 feet of cove molding. Drawer pulls. Primer and paint. Check the links below for the tools and supplies used in this build.
This project was a little more expensive with the supply bill coming in at a little over $250.
But a piece like this in a furniture store would easily cost over $1,000 and not be built to this quality. Check the links below for the tools and supplies used in this build.
