Looks good so far. How are you attaching the drawer dividers for the lower 6 drawers?
Thanks for posting.

Drawers not bottomed or sanded yet…I groove 7/8ths the length of the drawer side with a 1” bit, 1/4” deep for round ended side runners made of teak. Stops are a sprung wooden “clips” in the center front above and behind the opening…push clip up drawer comes out.

The bottom 6, will be side runners, stops incorporated into runners with a brass pin inside drawer that runs into slot in runner, when it hits end, pull brass pin and drawer comes out.

All matched grains from one Cherry find.
Maple is unmatched.
Top is 4 boards, Whiteside glue-joint bit, 1” thick, dressed on 3 sides with table-top bit

No dividers. 3 drawers run on separate side groove wooden runners; open.

Very nicely done Joe! I like your approach to the drawer slides! I imagine a little wax and those things probably slide smoother than the metal ball bearing slides.

thanks man!
I have some new pics soon.
I have it all put together and a coat of Danish Oil so far, letting it dry for a few days, then Arm-R-Seal.
I will post pics tomorrow.
Your right, the drawers glide/slide like bearings, I put Johnsons wax on the grooves and slides.
I use Johnsons for my cast iron machine tops and drawer glides and such.
For finishes I strictly use Goddards. Just my way, but any good wax works.

Ha, I know huh…I could, but I always do 3 coats, and besides, the bed that goes with it got 3, so 3 it is, I could, in the future, probably go with 2, it does look good…the Mirka Gold 320 g after the first coat did a lot for it, I sanded really lightly by hand and cleaned it really well.
Thanks Willie
