We’re nearing the end of the Walnut Buffet build. Just a couple more episodes and we’re done. If you have any questions so far about some aspect of the construction, drop me a line EMAIL YOUR QUESTION or leave a comment in today’s shownotes.
Today I’m showing you how I constructed the drawer boxes for the two large drawers. Drawer box construction is really simple. At the heart of it, it’s nothing more than assembling an open topped box that slides into an opening. The big question on my mind when I’m building drawers for any project are how will they slide in and out of the opening and what joinery am I using to assemble the drawer sides to the front and back?
The first joint most woodworkers will answer with – dovetails. But is it the only joint you can use? What if you don’t know how, or you’re just not fond of them? Let’s discuss some common joinery techniques that not only look good but are just as strong as the dovetail. That’s what’s coming up in the second half of the show today.
