Step One

Cut the pieces for the legs. Cut the taper using a jigsaw, bandsaw, or tapering jig on a table saw.

Step Two

Cut the pieces for the side frames, side panel, and spacers. Drill pocket holes in each end of the frame pieces as well as the long edges of each panel piece. Attach the frame pieces to the panel piece using glue and 1″ pocket hole screws. The back face of the panel will be flush with the back face of the frame pieces. Attach the panel assemblies to the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. Attach the spacers using glue and countersunk 1-1/4″ screws.

Step Four

Cut the piece for the top. It will overlap the frame and legs by 1/2″ on all sides. Use glue and 1-1/4″ brads to secure.

Step Five

Cut the pieces for the drawer fronts. Note that the upper frame piece will be 1/8″ narrower than the lower frame piece. Drill pocket holes in the long edges of the 1/2″ piece only. Assemble in the same manner as the sides and back.

Step Six

Cut the pieces for the drawer box. Drill pocket holes in each end of the side pieces as well as all four edges of the bottom. Attach the sides to the bottom using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws, then attach the front and back. The drawer front will be 3/4″ wider than the drawer box.
