Quick and Sturdy Drawer Construction
Build elegant drawers in record time
Speedy construction methods arent always associated with elegant finished products. A method of drawer construction used by Tennessee woodworker Lonnie Bird is the exception. He has devised a way to assemble drawers that resulted in strong, attractive additions to his kitchen cabinets. Sliding dovetails were the answer for strong, invisible side joints, while the drawer bottom sits in dadoes and is nailed into place. This method allowed Bird to mill, cut, and assemble 13 drawers in a day.
