Discover an intriguing way to hang drawers.
By Bob Dickey
Overall dimensions: 14"w × 91⁄2"d × 83⁄4"h
This Asian-influenced box, with its broad beveled top and pagoda styling, features a drawer-hanging system that doubles as a dominant design element. Contrasting woods contribute to the overall look, as do the custom-made pulls. Splines join the mitered drawer corners, while the V-grooves cut in the drawer sides provide purchase on the wooden slides attached to the legs.
Precision setup and machining are key in the construction, made possible by a collection of simply-made jigs. I’ll walk you through a successful building experience, so that, in the end, you’ll have a worthy holiday gift item and a bucketful of new skills guaranteed to pay forward on later projects.
