In this, the second of three articles on how to build an Arts-and-Crafts sideboard, Gary Rogowski covers drawers and doors. Building and fitting these parts carefully is every bit as important to a piece of furniture as making a sturdy case. He explains how to add web frames, or drawer dividers, to support the three drawers and then how to build and install the drawers and doors. He talks about how to glue in dividers, the top rail, and kickers, prefinishing along the way. Detailed project plans show the dimensions and parts. Rogowski also offers tips on how to prevent tearout, how to fit the drawers, how to keep door panels flat, and how to set the reveal on the doors. Side photos and explanations show the way to install bullet catches.
