Build a beautifully understated dresser with this digital plan. Designed by furniture maker and Fine Woodworking executive art director Michael Pekovich, this handsome chest of drawers is as practical as it is good looking. To craft your own version, start off right with a copy of the Low Chest of Drawers digital plan.

Not too boxy, not too tall, it’s just right. To avoid the boxy look dressers tend to have, this design relies on frame-and-panel construction that allows legs to be added to the piece, lifting it off the floor so it appears lighter. The drawers are arranged side-by-side, emphasizing the horizontal lines. Both of these elements can make the project more complicated, unless you know Mike’s construction strategies.

Expert tips for simplifying the complex. Since most of the parts and joinery use consistent dimensions and Mike’s approach breaks down the process into bite-size pieces, it’s not as difficult as it may appear. Also, because there are a fair number of pieces, he offers an assembly strategy that sidesteps potential problems and ensures a stress-free final glue-up.

A timeless piece with flair – a treasure for years to come. This low chest of drawers provides ample storage in a rock-solid piece that will serve you well. And its simple design mixes and matches well with many other styles. It is just one example of Michael Pekovich’s ability to design topnotch furniture and lay out a construction plan that makes it easily accessible to intermediate-level craftsmen.
