Need help getting measurements of pieces I need to cut to build coffee table.

Before I begin, I just need to let everybody know that I have no experience whatsoever in building furniture. I've only just recently began my research on how to do this. Everything I wish to incorporate into my design I've listed below:

Linon Sutton Coffee Table Features:
• 2 large drawers
• 1 fixed shelf
• Constructed from rubberwood
• Contemporary chrome finished hardware
Finish: Black
42"(W) x 21"(D) x 18"(H)

Below is my finished product:

As you can see, I'm trying to attempt a replication. The only problem is that I don't know the exact measurements of the individual pieces that I need to cut in order to build this thing to the specified dimensions. I shouldn't have much of a problem trying to assemble the pieces together. All I need is to make sure the pieces are cut right so I can achieve the desired dimensions. Is there somebody that can help me with the measurements? It would be greatly appreciated.

A tape measure would be a good start.

What tools do you have to build this?

There are all kinds of working drawings and materials lists for this sort of thing online. I would do some exploring in that regard. This looks like a fairly simple furniture project so have fun.
