Ah those web-frames. Built the way norm does, but with a simple addition.

I add a kicker to each frame. Just another stick, glued and screwed near the middle of the frame. This way, the drawer below will not tip when you open it. Screws are counter-sunk, one each end. The bottom web-frame gets two such kickers. Down here, there is no drawer to guide along, but the kickers turn into a place to hold the wide piece of wood I scallop for the bottom of the chest. Just adds more support that way.

I run screws in from the outside of the case, and into each web-frame. Screws will be covered by plugs that are cut from a matching piece of scrap. Face frame pieces are also just screwed in place, with plugs over the screws. A bead of glue is applied under each piece.

Well, that is how I start building a dresser/chest of drawers. The one in these pictures has a “serial number” of 135. That is how many I have made over about 20+ years in this “hobby”. Stay tuned for more…
