Pot Drawer progress

2008-12-03 01:47:52.1277+00 by Dan Lyke 3 comments

The 352 holes I drilled the weekend before last paid off, after a little bit of rework 'cause I miscalculated the height of the slides, I bent up some dividers and screwed in the drawer slides, and loaded up the drawers. More pictures here.

I thought you made a drawer to put your pot in... not your pots!

Nice drawers. Especially when you expose them.

What kind of wood are the drawer sides, I assume it's not Pine and it won't split as it ages..

Eric, does YouTube have every bad video clip ever made? Laughing.. Yes, it's a rhetorical question. But I also assume Dan's joinery skills could hide a false bottom or compartment in things without being easily detected.

But, like in Boulder, no need for stash boxes for weed, Dan's probably hoarding gold, bullets, and cash like the rest of America.

The drawers are made of Appleply, a solid core plywood made from Alder and Birch, with a Maple veneer and a strip of Maple along the top edge. I used plywood rather than solid wood for dimensional stability as the humidity changes. The initial plan was to dovetail the corners, but the plywood splintered enough to be a problem, so I went with the Domino and loose tenons.

The sides are continuous and exposed on the front and back because I'll be adding an additional front to them.
