How To build a dresser – step by step tutorial guide

Step 1: Plan The Dresser

Before you begin, it’s important to plan everything out. First, find out how big you want your dresser to be. Draw out a dresser first. Then turn it into a plan by adding measurements that will actually work.

First off, you want to label all of your pieces. Write on them which direction they go, which piece they are, and so on. You can always sand out any writing later so feel free to write as much info as you want.

Step 2: Label Your Pieces

Taking one of the 50 1/2″ panels, you need to mark all of the lines on your inside side panel for horizontal supports. This is where you will use the sketch of your plans to find all of the right measurements.

Step 3: Mark Your Panel

Now, you need to take your 29-3/4” panels that will offer horizontal support. It’s time to add pocket holes in them. Pocket holes are diagonal holes that are easy to cover up and can be drilled at an angle.

Step 4: Add Pocket Holes
