Drawer

The drawer is flush fronted, with lapped dovetails on the front corners and through dovetails on the rear. The base is made from plywood fixed on to square-section pine strips which are glued and pinned around the inside edges of the base of the sides.

1 Cut out the drawer front and plane all the edges square. It should fit into the hole in the front of the carcass with a '/32in (1mm) clearance all round.

2 Mark and cut out the back and' sides, and glasspaper the edges. Following the procedure on page 18, make through dovetails on the back corners and lapped dovetails on the front corners.

3 Mark and cut out the base, making sure that it is exactly square. Cut out the base-supporting strips and glue and pin them on to the four sides on the inside bottom edge.

4 Glue and assemble the four corners and, with the base placed temporarily inside, clamp the sides. (The base will hold the sides square as the glue dries.) When the glue on the corners is dry, glue and pin the base supports around the inside of the base of the sides, and pin the base to them. Clean up the joints at the corners with a plane, and screw a wooden knob to the drawer front.
