Love ‘em. I just used this technique in the last build I did with a dozen drawers. They work great. I need to go back to the shop and put faces on them.

Did you use a jig to draw the faces?

Bet they never said 10,000 what though. Glad to see the Bull rope and bell hanging on the wall instead
of in use, and that you are still moving OK. Nice simple and useful jigs. Thank you for sharing.
