Kendal Extra Wide Dresser Plans

After way too much time, I’ve finally compiled and released a downloadable project plan for the Kendal Extra Wide Dresser project.  You can access the plan page from any one of the blog posts or you can go straight there from here.  Star Wars Legos are not included… sorry!

    I purchased your plans and am in the process of building and I have a couple observations and a question also.

    Observations: I cannot see in your cut list/diagram where you show the 3 top 1X2 supports or the 1 bottom 1X2 support (15 1/2″ long each). These should be added to the list, although I’m not sure you would want to use the select pine or hardwood 1X2 that was left over since it’s not being seen. I’m also going to add in a couple more supports to the top since the actual top of the dresser is exclusively resting on these supports rather than the legs or side supports structurally. On your cut list, you might also specify that the lattice is sourced from five 8 foot pieces of pine moulding or just add a diagram to the cut list (I painstakingly calculated).

    Question: Maybe I don’t understand how rear drawer track sockets work, but I estimate that 8 of those are needed (given you should need 4 for the top three drawers and 4 for the bottom 4 drawers. Are you saying 4 sets or 4 rear sockets?

    Thanks in advance and great work!

      Thanks for the observations Chris! I really appreciate your feedback (and buying my plan!). I reviewed the cut list and saw that I didn’t have the top supports on the 1x2s that make up the face frame. I’ll add those to the cut diagram and update the plan, thanks for the catch! I’d go ahead and use the select pine (or hardwood) even though the supports are hidden since otherwise it’s just overage. As for the drawer pulls and rear drawer track sockets, the pulls come in a set (left & right) so you need 7 of those since there are 7 drawers. The rear drawer track sockets come in packs of 2. The sockets fit the drawer pulls when there’s no side to mount them to. The reason you need 4 packs (not 4 individual sockets) is that the drawer pulls mount on the sides of the dresser for the top left and right drawers and on the dresser sides of the 2 bottom drawers. So the only rear mount sockets you need are for the 2 middle sections between the 3 top drawers and the 2 middle sections of the larger bottom drawers. Make sense?

    We paid for your plans for the Kendal extra wide dresser. We are not able to read the dimensions. They are all out of focus. Even when we look on the download and enlarge the page the numbers are still out of focus. Not able to use the plans as they are.

      Thanks for bringing that to my attention & I’m sorry! It looks like my delivery system compressed the file and made the images fuzzy. I am uploading a new high res plan now and will send you a new download email shortly. Please let me know that you were able to download and read the images and measurements.
