Drawer Parts Galore
I started by squaring some panels to the width of the drawers. To save time I rabbeted the entire panel. Later I would rip them to create the sized drawer fronts.
Testing the drawer front fit. You can see the drawer pieces in each cubby awaiting their fronts.
The backs of the drawers are held by dadoes 1/2” in from the back of the drawer. I got to spend some quality time with the new crosscut sled.
If you squint you can see that there is another 1/2” piece supporting the stock during this cut.
Then I dry fit each drawer.
Rabbets in the front, Dadoes in the back.
Fitting to the cabinet… Testing…Testing…..
The pulls on this are simple holes drilled to create a finger pull.
I marked all of the drawers at once with a framing square.
I set up a simple fence and stop system at the drill press to drill the 1 1/8” holes
Holes in place. (The bottom left ply was a leftover and a little bendy.. I think it will straighten out when attached to the drawer. I will make it straighten out. Ply: Gulp…
A quick test of the pull and the drawer space.
Assemble the drawers.
Thanks for reading. Cheers!
