Let me jump in here with the way I did the half-blind DTs on a project I’m completing now. I designed and built a queen size platform bed with matching nightstand. The height of each of the four drawers in the bed is 9.5”. For a nightstand, I usually use three drawers with the largest at the bottom for visual weight. In this case, the drawer heights are 6.5”, 5.75” and 4.5” bottom to top. I used the same Incra template for all the drawers, aligning the center of the drawer height with a given pin on the template.

In the image below, the drawer on the right is what I used in the bed. I chose a template, DOV-K, to give me a full pattern top-to-bottom. The bottom of the three nightstand drawers also ends up with a full pattern because of the 3” repeat. For the other drawers, I simply re-centered the template using the Incra Centering Template, based on their widths.
