Hello All,

I cut the pins on the back piece, of my tiny drawer. When the drawer sides are assembled they pins are very snug. It is almost hard to take back apart. I am very pleased with how it has turned out thus far. Of cousre, a drawer isn’t a drawer, until it has a bottom. It was the grooves ro the bottom which caused my undoing on the last attempt. It is all part of the journey, but the successes are more fun than the failures. :-)

hello Brian
you donĀ“t have to have a template to cut the grove
you can use two blocks fastened to your fench on the routertable
to make a stoped grove , or if you want a new handtool ..LOL
use a plovplane like the little Veritas or you can use a little routerplane or big one
I wuold go for a little routerplane in this case

take care
