Looks like that spray finish turned out really good.

Did the people wish they would have opted for a larger station there to fill up the space to the left?

I did have flashbacks to when I had a brad nail come out the side of a drawer right into my finger when I was watching you nail the trim onto the top.

Yes, I love the Graco sprayer! It’s a game changer. They ended up putting their trash cans over to the side. That sounds awful to have a nailer go into your finger!

Thanks for watching!

Yeah, wasn’t much fun. Just be careful of where your offhand fingers are when nailing.

I’m concerned about your use of pocket screws to attach the drawer front to the sides. By screwing through the side and into the back side of the drawer front, the only mechanical connection is the screw threads. They will tend to pull loose over time, particularly when the drawer gets loaded with weighty objects.

Of course, a dovetail joint is the best. Short of that, a drawer lock joint is next best (just search “drawer lock joint” for various ways to create one). There are lots of other creative ways to attach the sides to the front as well. The important thing is that the drawer can stand up to repeated pulling on the front without it coming loose from the sides.
