1. Dresser/Chest of Drawers – A dresser is basically a chest of drawers. This type of wood furniture project could therefore involve the use of a the dovetail joint. This one of the more complex joints to construct but is one of the strongest. It uses interlocking fingers that join together the side of a the drawer to the front of drawer which is used to store items inside the dresser or chest of drawers. No nails, screws or dowels are required, just white glue. These fingers are cut at angles giving this wood joint added strength.
