Instructables

Step 13: Rails

Picture of Rails
I planed/thicknessed the oak for the rails, then cut to length, then cut tenons.

For the rail on the front I marked out where I wanted the draws and drilled all the way through with a forstner bit.

I then cut between the holes with a jigsaw to take out the bulk.

The edges were formed by tracing along a straight edge with a flush bit in the ol' router...then I spent too damn long sanding off the burn marks that left me!
