My cabinet project continues to be a bit of a pain in my but, but thats what happens when you don’t have the knowledge to plan things properly. I recently blogged about my drawers (if you’re interested in the full rant, check it out through the link in my signature), but to make a long story short, The drawer part of my Nursery cabinet has a face frame and the drawers are only about 1/8” narrower than the opening.
The back is 1/4” plywood, but there’s about 5/8” clearence behind the drawer.
The drawer slips that I’m using are from Lee Valley’s hardware catalogue here.
I plan on running a 1/4” or 3/8” board up the back to attach the back part of the rail to as I’m not sure that I trust the 1/4” ply to lend enough strength.
I really just want to get this one done so that it can stop haunting my dreams on how long this is taking to finish (I started it back in January and it’s officially the first project I started, even though I’ve finished 4 others in the meantime). If I could really start over and had the time to (and the money) I would.
Any thoughts and suggestions much appreciated!
