This is the last part of my drafting table, the drawer and board assembly.
I built the drawer out of pine as well. Measuring 24”w x 18”h x 4”d, finished just like the box. With a 25”w x 5”d false front made of soft maple, finished in danish oil to give it some contrast.
I rabbetted a 1/4” out of the bottom of the drawer frame and attached a 1/4” peice of hard board than laminated the bottom with the granite colored contact paper. I finished it with 6 coats of colonial stain and 3 poly.
I also used 1 1/4” square dowels for drawer guides to help prevent racking. I squared, glued, than screwed them into place. Finished in colonial stain and poly.
I took a 4” l x 1 1/2”d x 3/4”h peice of pine routed a finger groove in the bottom and finished it like the drawer box. I used 2, 1 1/8”w x 1 1/8”d x 8”l soft maple peices for the table top extensions finished in dutch oil.
I displayed it on my daughters old dresser that I am using for my routing table/cabinet.
