Building a Drawer How-To

About: Lone rustic furniture builder in Denver, Colorado. I use only standing-dead aspen and pine that grows right here in the Rocky Mountains!

In this video Scott shows how to build a sturdy drawer box for a dresser using dimensional lumber. Don't worry, there's no dove-tailing involved but the end product is just as strong and still attractive.

    Great video and very helpful.

    One minor "constructive" criticism is the use of dado blades. Not every table saw is capably of installing dado blades, and in some areas of the world they are actually illegal. A brief mention of the alternatives, e.g. routing, or multiple passes, would make the concept more accessible I think.
