« Part 5: Wedge and Strap Backsplash, Trimming Top, and Staining Part 6 of Arts and Crafts Entertainment Center / Sideboard series no next part

After mounting the slides, I used carpet tape to temporarily attach the drawer fronts. Slides are Centerline 757’s, and mounting is the same as my dresser project here… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/34281

Drawer fronts installed with 4 screws each.

Since the drawers are graduated from 6” to 9”, I made a full sized pattern for the largest drawer. Then I marked the size of the other drawers, and used those lines to lay out all drawer pull holes on one template. A cleat on two sides of the template registers it in position. I use the “No Math” drawer pull layout method described here…

Figure 8 tabletop fasteners installed. I found some thick, solid metal versions at my local woodworking store. The chain stores sell the hollow version, which flex too much.

Aromatic cedar drawer bottoms.

14 degree dovetail drawers. Drawer fronts pre-stained to highlight the D.T. joints. Drawer boxes finished with shellac, and drawer bottoms left unfinished. For more on this type of drawer construction see my dresser post here… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/34094

That’s about it on this cabinet. Time to move it inside, and install the top and back panel.
Cheers!
