Making The Drawer

Build the drawer for your Pembroke table as you would for a Queen Anne secretary, (page 116) using through dovetails to join the pieces. Use 14-inch plywood for the drawer bottom. The Pembroke table drawer also gets a false front which is curved to match the shape of the end rail and drawer rails.

To install the drawer, start by fastening runners to the side rails, as shown below. Slide the drawer into its opening and clamp on the false front, then trace the curve of the top drawer rail onto the top edge of the false front (page 42) and cut the profile of the front. You can apply wax to the runners to help the drawer ride smoothly as it is opened and closed.

Supported by runners fastened to the side rails, the Pembroke table drawer shown above is assembled with through dovetails. The false front curves to match the profile of the end rail and drawer rails.
