« Part 17: A 'Feature' gets (Re-) Discovered Part 18 of Tool Chest Refurb series Part 19: A Latch!! »

Here’s what I’ve had:

The vertical saw till needed flush ring pulls, and those finally came in this week. Tonight was install time.

First to practice on pine. Traced it with a knife, chisel’d (carefully) and drilled and got the fit right. Lots of chiseling ahead on a much narrower piece of walnut.

Removed the saws and square from the till and set it up on the bench for work.

Chisel’d out the square, marked for the deep, recessed cut needed for the pull. Used the forstner in a suitable brace.

Pre-drilled for the screws (phillips type, but those will be replaced with slotted screws when I get them…)

Done, and Done.

As always, thanks for looking!

Looking good. When the final installment comes out, I look forward to the before/after photos. I have forgot what shape/condition it was in before the work began.

EDIT: Oh, my…

Eric, don’t panic. Phillips will be replaced, just have to find the right size slotted screws. What I bought was too big…

The forstner bit, a special one for braces or an ordinary DP type?

Ordinary. The brace jaws accepted it pretty readily, worked great.

Wow Smitty, not much room for error chiselling that out was there? Did you consider turning it 90 degrees and offsetting it so that when the pull was lifted it pulled in the center of the drawer? Probably wouldn’t look as nice, but would have given you a bit more wood around the outside. Just curious. Looks great.

Just visited the project post and realised that you installed two pulls, not one.

No, Andy, not much margin at all…

I tried turning them, simply didn’t look right. Fortunately went well, just had to take my time that’s all.
