I’m building a jewelery amoire for DW over here.
The inside dimensions of the carcass is 15 1/8 wide and 10 1/2 deep. It is made from 3/4 board.
The drawers will be made form the same 3/4 material (yea I know its overkill). I was thinking about making them 15” wide and 10 3/8” deep.
I was thinking about putting a 1/4” to 3/8” dato (1/4” deep) in the side of the drawers and affixing wooden sliders on the inside of the carcass. However . . . this will not prevent the drawer from falling out if yanked on to enthusiastically.
I was thinking about dovetailing the dato . . . however I don’t have a clue how to attach the dovetail slider to the inside of the box.
Any suggestions would be helpful . . . pictures too would be great.
