BTW, I doubled up on the four corners. I ripped two 1-1/2" pieces of poplar and glued them together. That would have made them 1-1/2" square corners. Here is a Front Side Piece Glue-Uppic of the glue-up of the corners.

Hi Chris,

So sorry that I haven't been able to get back to you and answer your question. I was too busy painting the exterior of my home. It took me two months! I'm now working on one of my bathrooms.

At any rate, I used 3/4" poplar for everything except for the three walls of the drawers. I used 3/4" pine for that. For the drawer bottoms, I used some kind of smooth plywood, but it wasn't plywood. It sold in 4x8 sheets, and it was 1/8" to 3/16s" thick. I would never use 1/4" regular plywood for the drawer bottoms. Too thick for me. I also used wooden drawer slides from Lee Valley Tools at $5.80 per.  

I hope that helps! If you have any more questions, just contact me.

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
