I'm planning to build two tall dressers for my sons.
I'm planning on keeping them fairly simple - They'll be 10 and 8 soon -- as I expect these dressers to be "beat on". I'll probably use Baltic Birch for the drawer boxes, hardwood frame + drawer froints, and plywood for the carcass + back.
Unfortunately, I've loaned out my copy of Thomas Moser's "Measured Shop Drawings for American Furniture".
So I just sat down tonight with SketchUp and started doodling a box and trying out proportions. This is where I am so far.

Feel free to take a poke at it. Am I missing anything important? I tend to favour Craftsman and Shaker styling, and this has hints of it.
(We're going flush to the floor, so that we don't get stuff stuck under it, and so we don't have to clean under it )
