What’s to keep you from yanking the drawer front off over time?@bondogaposis How weak are the glue joints really? I'm not married to this design at all but every demonstration I ever see around wood glue is that it's "as strong as wood". I can definitely see glue failing in theory but in practice do we see a lot of this happening?
Then do it correctly..Don’t cheat..I'm not a fan of the "double front" design which is what intrigued me about this. The dresser that I mentioned looks incredibly clean from a design standpoint and of course it loses some of the weight which is always a plus.
. “Maybe furniture, but this is a utility drawer.”I don't see any significance to those two factors. Maybe furniture, but this is a utility drawer. The one big advantage to applied fronts is you can align them after the drawers are mounted, ensuring perfect gaps.
A simple rabbet with dowels or trim screws and plugs are very easy/strong ways to make a drawer. Sliding dovetails are great, but fiddly and you need a good set up to make them. Not the first choice for anyone I know. SD in a 10" high drawer?
We have never called it a”Utility drawer”Its easier to align the fronts. Adjustable undermounts are an advantage.
No confusion on my part.
Still learning things, how about you?
