I am planning out an upcoming dresser build and could use some information / direction. It’s a simple chest of drawers with an internal frame. The runners will sit in a grove in the sides. Stretchers mortised to the runners.
My question is: which parts get glue and which do not, considering seasonal movement. I thought I saw this covered in a book but can not find it in my collection. Does anyone know of a book that substantially covers this
Also looking at Maloof dressers the runners are screwed to the case and the holes doweled over. Does this address seasonal movement?
Thanks for the input.
