I built this because I couldn't find a dresser that would last more than a year. Oh and this was my first dresser I have ever built. Next is the end tables and bed frame.

Estimated Cost 

The cost is close to 350.00 in material. The slides were upgraded to the full extension ones, they alone were over 100.00. I thought the cheap ones took away from the piece.

It took me about four weekends to complete. I worked about 3-4 hours every weekend.

Lumber Used 

The wood is Poplar especially the drawer fronts, legs and drawer dividers. The sides, top, and shelf are birch plywood.
