This is where we left things last time…

I built the small single drawer with half blind dovetails at all four corners.

-
-
-
-
-
I installed a 9” full extension undermount drawer slide. I use a hardwood shim between the drawer bottom and the slide. I plane the shim to fine tune the fit of the drawer in its opening.

Drawer installed.

-
The drawer bottom is aromatic cedar.

-
-
-
-
-
Here you can see the blocking that was added to receive the drawer slide, and the figure 8 fasteners used to attach the top.

-
-
-
I use a scrap of plywood as a jig to locate the holes for the drawer pulls.

-

-
-
-
Hammered pull installed.

Willie, that’s a great build, with pictures and all. I have never thought of using a drawer slide on the bottom of the drawer. Good to be thinking outside the drawer.

Nice job. What finish did you go with?

Willie, another fine looking project. I especially liked the chamfered edges on the breadboards; that is a nice detail. Thanks for the tutorial.

jcontract,
The finish is a shellac washcoat as a pre-stain conditioner (3 parts denatured alcohol to 2 parts shellac seal coat), Varathane Dark Walnut stain, and lacquer as the topcoat.

Thanks
