My next project (my first non shop furniture project) incorporates dovetail drawers. I have always loved the look of dark primary wood drawer fronts contrasting with bight crisp white secondary wood sides, so I’m excited about the challenge ahead.
One question I have is in regard to a finishing strategy. Do you generally apply the finish to the drawer sides as well as the fronts? Does this lessen the contrast between them? Or do you apply finish to only the visible primary wood dovetails ends?
Thanks in advance!
