I am completing a small hanging wall box. There is a lid on top over a small bin. Below the bin, there is a drawer. Without the drawer, it looks like this:
I left the drawer just a little tight. Now I am doing the final fitting. I installed the back of the box this morning. After that, the drawer starting having a lot of resistance going in and out because of the air pressure. The back of the drawer is acting as a piston. It is not binding against the enclosure, and goes in and out pretty well if done very slowly so that the air has a chance to escape or enter.
I have never made anything that has a drawer in an enclosed chamber like this.
Should I drill some holes in the back of the box behind the drawer? (This box is meant to hang against a wall from a peg.) Or should I shave down the back of the drawer? I really do not want to do that, and I think that the same problem would happen when the front of the drawer started to go in.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
