Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village in this video clip I'll be talking about the types of materials that we're going to use for our project. The material that we are going to be using first is 3/4" oak plywood, this plywood comes in 4 feet wide by 8 feet long sheets. It is meant to look like 1 big massive oak board. The next material is 1/2" oak plywood this is going to used for our drawer sides. The next material is 1/4" oak plywood this is going to be used as the back of our chest of drawers in addition it's going to be used as the drawer bottoms. Our 3/4" oak plywood will be used for the sides, the top and the bottom of our chest of drawers. In addition to the plywood material we will be using solid oak boards we're going to be using this for the trim. We're also going to be using this for the drawer fronts.
