I finished putting the dovetails in the sides and the top & bottom web-frames. Now there is something to look at! Of course it's also a bit bigger than I had imagined. For some reason, a five foot tall, three foot wide dresser didn't sound as big as it really looks. And when I say really big, I mean "holy crap, I hope I don't have to move that very often!" BIG.
You can get the idea where the drawers are going to be in this picture as well. Each of those dados (aka grooves) on the inside of the left side of the dresser will help support a web-frame. The web-frame (sorta like a picture frame lying on it's back) will support the drawers and provide a smooth surface for them to glide on as they are opened and closed in daily use.
The web-frame on the bottom serves a dual purpose of supporting the bottom drawer and attaching the dresser carcase to the base.
The web-frame on the top will be used to attach the top to the dresser from the inside to prevent having any unsightly screws going through the top of the dresser. Not that is matters since it would take a rather tall individual to even see them if they were there!!
Next on the to-do list will be building all of the web-frames for the drawer supports. Pictures will follow as the progression continues...
