Book Cabinet Drawer

The book cabinet has one shallow, wide drawer at the top of the case. Sugar pine was used for the sides and back, mahogany for the front, and cedar for the drawer bottom. This is a dovetailed drawer with the bottom retained by grooves in the sides and front.

I recently had a three-post series on Half-Blind Dovetail joinery.  You may reference that link and follow the path backwards for the other two posts in that series. I use some of these images as well as small test boards.

An upcoming post will show the Sapodilla (another sinker wood from Belize) drawer pull details.
