Debbie had to show the world my secret drawer by posting my blog it on her monthly email, well now everybody knows my secret, blah.
This dresser is slow going. It has been a while since I have worked on it or posted a blog on it. Last night the kids were watching a movie and my wife was happy quilting upstairs, so I had no excuse not to work on it.
The drawers were all in place, but I still had to tweak the slides a little to keep them from rocking. This take a bit of work and it is an art to get them flush with the front (including drawer front, and both sides the slides parallel, to take the rocking out and not leaning forward or backward.
The finished fronts I make over sized and trim them down bit by bit until they fit just right in the opening. Some openings are not square and the drawer front needs to match that. The drawer fronts I make a 3/16” smaller than the opening.
I use the business cards they send in the junk mail for spacers, 2 cards taped together give me just the right space. Than I nail the front on from the back with a pin nailer and later use drywall screws to make it permanent.
I bought the hardware for this dresser. This was picked by my lovely wife. We will mix knobs and handles. The knobs will go on the upper smaller drawers.
That’s it for now, hopefully I will be able to post this as a project soon.
