    Made plans but new to woodworking and need help with joints

    I’m new to woodworking and have a novice skill set. I had an awesome idea pop in my head, so I watched YouTube and learned how to use sketch up. I made the piece but not sure if the base of this “dresser” type piece will work. HELP!!! Do these joints make sense and how should I attack this?

    Floor Clock Plans?

    My wife has asked me to build a floor clock (grandfather/mother) for my next project.
