I had not planned for this mini-series on drawer construction to cover four different blog posts, but it has. These drawers have taken a lot of time and fussing with; and there have been understandable delays due to things like football games, birthdays (my wife’s 50th) and such as that. But, I am glad to say that the drawers for the built-in project have been completed!!!
Going back to my post on October 3rd, I had completed the construction of the drawer boxes and had glued up the necessary quarter-sawn red oak boards for the drawer faces. Since that time I have taken these additional steps on the drawers…
After some additional fitting and fussing with the spacing of the drawer face within the face frame, it is time to permanently attach the face to the drawer.
I will work on the shelves tomorrow which will be a simple process. This will be followed by some final sanding and then the finish will be applied. The installation of this built-in will be a little bit of an undertaking, so this project still has a ways to go.
