« Part 7: Sliding dovetail drawer dividers Part 8 of Sweet Chest of Drawers Build series Part 9: The guts: part 1 »

I couldn’t stop at just making big drawers. I had to get all fancy and divide the top drawers into smaller drawers. I don’t really have as much to say about these pictures but I hope you guys enjoy them.

This first picture is really blurry but the rest are okay.

Lengthwise, they are divided into thirds.

Same steps as before… Plow the dovetail groove with a router by hand, then make the sliding dovetail part on the table, just like the last blog.

Yyyyyyyuck! Someone’s dog could have chewed better dovetails than that. Two reasons these ugly dovetails happened: Biggest reason #1) I said, “one last divider to go,” and not so big reason #2) I used that dovetail bit too much without sharpening it.

I contemplated ignoring them but I couldn’t… I’ve worked too hard to get this far. Just a little sharpening with one of those little diamond sharpener things and it was good to go. Luckily, I made an extra divider just in case I messed something up somewhere. I knew I would eventually.

And here you have it, fellas… Just a couple of excessive pictures to show you a couple different angles and things.

Sorry if anybody has been consistently following these blogs. I’m going to be taking a final in the next couple of days and I need to make sure I do a good job. With that being said, I hope I’ve given you something good to look at until I post the next one. I’m not sure when that’ll be but it will be somewhat soon. Plus I probably have about 2 or 3 more blogs left before you’re all caught up to me so I need to get back in the garage to make more progress.

Have a good week, everyone.

I really like the drawer layout. Kick ass on your finals.
