Step 8: Drawers and Finish Work
43. Then I moved on to drawers. I decided what size I wanted my drawers to be and sized my stock. I like ½” wall drawer boxes.
44. I cut dovetails (use whatever method you are comfortable with) and glued the drawers together. Then, I decided what kind of drawer fronts and handles I wanted. I fabricated, sanded and attached to the drawers after they’d been sanded.
45. After, I final sanded all my parts – case and all. For this, I suggest you wear your dust mask and turn your radio really loud, this step is going to take a while.
46. Time for finish work. I chose to spray all my parts. You may choose the same or to oil. As with all steps, take your time here. Any piece of furniture is only as good as the finish that you put on it.
