Hey guys, I’m doing my first hall table and I’m a little held up because I’m not sure how I should proceed and figured I should ask for some advice.
The front of this table I would like to put a small drawer, however, I really don’t want to cut up the piece on the front by splitting it into a top rail. I don’t have a decent bandsaw so I feel like if I run the front through the table saw it’s going to throw off the nice grain I want to preserve on the front.
My thoughts were to just layout on the front where I want my drawer to be, drill through it, cut out the bulk of the waste with a jigsaw and then clean up the rest with chisels. I really tried to do my research but it seems like everyone ends up cutting up the front and then rebuilding it once the drawer opening is cut.
I just want to see what peoples opinions are on the matter.
