Example text

Here’s a really quick and useful solution. I used 3⁄4"-thick (19mm) particleboard, but feel free to substitute any type of panel you like. I considered oriented strand board (OSB), the stuff that you see used on houses as exterior sheathing before the siding goes up, because I like its raw, patchy look. But I had to admit it would look out of place in my bedroom. If you have an industrial loft-type interior, however, it is a material that might interest you. Even though it is large, this armoire is one of the most quickly made projects in the book, and for that reason alone, it’s pretty satisfying to build.

Shop around; I found that prices varied quite a bit depending on the source. I also recommend purchasing the containers prior to building the dresser itself. This way, you can measure them exactly to ensure they fit perfectly into the finished piece. In terms of joinery, I used pocket holes, but plugged screws are another good option. I found a deal on maple veneered plywood at my local home center. It has both a gorgeous figure and creamy white color, so I decided to finish it with a clear water-based polyurethane rather than cover it up with a stain or paint.

Begin by cutting the plywood to size for the drawer sides, then rip the groove for the bottom using the table saw or router table. If you use the table saw, you could fit it with a dado blade, but for just a few pieces like this, I find that it isn’t worth taking the time to swap blades.
