« Part 3: Making Drawers Part 4 of Cabinet Making series no next part

Making the drawer fronts was similar to making the drawers themselves. The actual construction of the fronts was not overly hard but there was a lot of repetition in terms of milling the wood. The one thing I could have done to improve the overall construction was mill the wood close and then let it acclimate it a bit more.

Here’s a picture of the drawer fronts on one cabinet


Here’s the cabinets being integrated together.

The Drawer Front Frames are actually made of Tiger Maple. The inserts are 1/4” Baltic Birch Ply.
