Simple Drawer StopsComments (0)
This article is from Issue 45 of Woodcraft Magazine.
A while ago, I made some
utility drawer cabinets for my shop, using face frame construction and wooden
drawer slides. Unfortunately, I sometimes found myself pulling the drawers out
too far and spilling their contents on the floor.
To prevent that nonsense, I drove a screw into the upper rear corner of each drawer side so that it would catch against the rear of the face frame to serve as a stop that can easily be removed when necessary. Not pretty, but effective. For nice furniture of similar construction, you could take a classier approach and use snug fitting hardwood dowels or short lengths of brass rod (available at hardware stores.)
