Making and gluing up the dust frames

Cut the pieces of the dust frames to length and drill elongated screw holes in the end boards; to allow for wood movement, the holes should be longer and wider than the shanks of the fasteners you will use to attach the frames to the carcase sides. Sand any frame surfaces that will be difficult to reach after glue up. Cut a plate joint (photo, page 109) at each corner of the frames, assemble the joints with wood biscuits and glue, then secure them with bar clamps, aligning the bars with the end pieces and protecting the stock with wood pads (above). Make sure the front end piece is recessed by an amount equal to the depth of the dadoes you cut in step 1. When making the dust frame for the two narrower drawers, include the cross rail (page 106).
