Well done.

If i could offer a better method. The drawer rests on a very sharp edge which tends to get caught in the cabinet and makes the drawer more difficult to open. The solution is; prior to attaching the front of the drawer bandsaw a section from the drawer, of a reasonable size, say 1/2 an inch. Then glue that sawn section into the cabinet, making sure it is touching the back of the box. Then attach the front of the drawer. There is no loss of drawer space but the drawer opening will be smoother. And over time the drawer’s sharp edge will not chip or break.

Hope this helps?

Have your say...
