Paul,

The dresser generally follows the plans I found online at:

http://ana-white.com/2014/03/plans/kendal-extra-wide-dresser

However, slight changes were made here and there.  For example, the dimension varied from the plans to make the dresser a little larger.  The design and construction method was changed regarding the dresser sides to match the bookcase that I had already made.  I lined all four sides of the oak plywood with solid oak (are those called aprons?) so the plywood edges wood not be visible.  For some reason, the plans seem to allow the edge of the plywood to show.  I don't know why that would be acceptable to anyone building this. Finally, please be sure the seams on the dresser top (where the solid oak is joined to the oak plywood) do not line up with the pocket hole screw that will hold it secure to the frame.  Failure to do so could split the joint on the finished top.  The Ana White website has a PDF file of the plans, and also a video that shows someone building the dresser.  Ana White has a lot of good plans in my opinion.  Thanks, Johnny Berry.

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…
