« Part 3: The Mock up Face frame, doors and drawers. Part 4 of Mom's kitchen Cabinets series Part 5: Ahhh the drawer is made! »

Today i will be attepting to adjust the new dovetail jig and then cutting all the drawer sides, fronts, and backs. There are 8 drawers to make annd then fit to the cabinets using Blumotion drawer slides, that Rockler shipped without directions thank you very much, but the new Leigh 12” jig will prove to be a nice addition to the shop as soon as i figure out how to use it. Here is a pic of the new jig after the assembly was completed.

Not the assembly time measured in beer is 2 12oz cans!

Assembly time as measured by beer tends to grow exponentially ;)

Very nice jig! I settled for the porter-cable, but hey, I can still afford to drink budweiser too! LOL
