With the cases assembled and glue dried, it’s time to mount the drawer slides. I started to manually measure the location for each slide…
But quickly realized that a quicker, more accurate way to lay out the lines would be a mini story pole.
Once the center lines were laid out, then it was time to install the slides. I used an awl to create a pilot for the 7/16” drill bit needed for the screws.
I also used a 3/4” scrap to position the slides.
Next, I cut out all the drawer blanks, ready for tomorrow’s rabbeting operation. Then install the drawer bottoms, attach drawer fronts and pulls and finish it off with some semi-gloss poly. Busy day tomorrow!
