This has been my “forever” project. Yeah, I started this dresser last May. I progressed right up until early September. I have been following a plan i purchased from www.wood.com store. It is their maple with cherry bedroom set. Besides this dresser, there are the other bedroom furniture items: a sleigh bed, a nightstand, and an armoire or linen press. I got to the point of fitting the drawer pieces. These drawers were to slide in and out simply on the shelves and a plastic strip for runners. I have never fitted a drawer like this. I began to study ways to do this process from magazine articles. It overwhelmed me. I froze. I admit it.
I am going to persoanally deliver several of my projects to my family members soon. Since I am going, I decided to place these drawers on side mounted metal slides.
This past week I bought the slides. I cut the dovetails. I routed the grooves for the plywood bottoms. This morning I completed gluing and clamping the drawer parts together. Next I will cut and fasten the plywood bottoms to the drawers with a screw or two. Beyond that I will mount the drawers to the metal slides. I have the beautiful figured cherry boards ready to cut and fasten as false drawer fronts.
I need to get back to work.
