I made a jewelry box each two of my granddaughters. One is age 5 and the other 3, so I wanted to add a “secret” drawer but didn’t want the release to be too complex. One of the tray supports in each of the boxes isn’t glued in and is a sliding dovetail joint. Once that support is slid upward, it releases the drawer from the back of the case. Unfortunately, making this joint work “just right” caused me to have to assemble & take apart several times, causing the dovetail joints on the box to develop some looseness. I’ll get over it.
-- If you don't have time to do it right, do you have time to do it twice?
