Nice Design, Poor Construction
I bought this plan because it looks like the exact design and size I'm seeking. I was very disappointed in the construction techniques which includes butt joining large plywood panels. This technique offers little strength, especially laterally, in a fairly heavy project that, because of the doors and drawers, must have enough lateral strength to keep it square. The use of the 1/4 inch back does not, IMHO, offer the kind of support that using simple screw and glue dado joints in the panel connections would offer. Since I like the design I will need to carefully review and modify dimensions to accomodate the addition of stronger joinery. Not what I expect from a furniture plan.
