Drawers for Cabinetry & Fine Furniture
Start by reviewing face frames and frameless cabinet construction, and learn which style of drawer is right for your project. Then, WOOD magazine contributing craftsman and educator Jim Heavey will demonstrate how to build a drawer box with drawer-lock or impressive dovetail joinery. Moving on, you’ll learn how to construct flat-panel and classic cope-and-stick raised-panel drawer fronts. Find out how to select the right wood for your front, discover proper router-table techniques, bit selection and more. Then, explore a variety of available hardware as Jim discusses full-extension and undermount soft-close slides, as well as epoxy-coated roller glides — plus, get troubleshooting tips for hardware installation! Finally, learn how to use a dovetail jig. Successfully set up and adjust your jig, test for fit and cut a perfect half-blind dovetail for professional-looking results you’ll love.
