It isn’t just like Norm’s, a lot more drawers and no dividers that he had.
On the face frame I dove-tailed the joints. To make thoes joints I made two fixtures. One to cut the tail and the other to cut the pin.
Notice in the pin fixture, three finger one, a whole in the center. It allows me to center the fixtrue.
I am not happy with my system of locating the drawer guides. Got to find something better. Maybe a T-Square type.
Speaking of drawers, note the handles. Just 2”x4”s cut in half and turned round. Or close to it. The handles are 12” long, and 6” mounting screw holes. I made two fixtures for them. One to drill the holes in the drawers, from 2” to 6” from the top of the drawer. Then I made another fixture, with Vee blocks, to drill the holes in the handle. Oh yes, another fixture to slide between the holes. Dirll first hole then slide the fixture on the fixture to the other hole. 18 drawers plus 6 in another cabinet and you have to make fixtures to get the work done.
Now I have a place to get the stuff off the floor.
