I modified Whitney's (Shanty2Chic) Rolling Rustic Wood Dresser slightly because I didn't want to have mine on wheels. Other than that, I basically followed her plans and advice! I used Maple plywood with poplar boards. With a dark stain they are a good match. I did use 3/4 maple plywood for the dresser drawers instead of 1x8" boards to save money. My wife is happy and my boys love their new dresser--that's all that matters!

Thanks, Anna, for this great site!

Really love how this came out! How big are those legs? I'm thinking of copying this design for my new place!

Thanks, Adam. The legs are 3x3 poplar you can get a piece at lowes or home depot (can't remember which) but they are actually 3 1x3s glued together but you'd never know it. Anyways, they are 3 1/2" tall and I put an additional piece of my 2x2s underneath to support them, then the strip of 1x2 between the legs on the side that are pockethole screwed into them as well--this is where the true strength comes in.
good luck!

Do you have a photo of the underside where the legs attach?
