Of other people down no matter who is don’t give anybody else that power and you wanna make even day, send me me a self-addressed stamped and I’ll send you my woodworking for me mortal mortal stickers I forgot so I have a whole bunch of these things. So if want one, I’ve got a you can see address is in the description of this video. Just scroll way down and you’ll see my PO box there. you don’t need to note or anything just send me an envelope with your address on it and a stamp. And I’ll send you one of these so brighten up your day just stick em wherever wherever you like, okay. I got my legs screws This morning so install this casters. By the way, a number of people have asked me why making these drawers this way with those shelves rather than making shelf or drawer runners, and that’s exactly the way did say this basic workbench plus is I just runners on the the drawer slide into it. So when you do this, this, it’s gonna a different type of construction in this case. What I have is the drawer made here and then it’s got this false false front front on on it. it that stops. These two sides and The thing about this is you’ve got to make that these faces are even and the space between them all matches. And that’s the I made this old Cabinet for my press just with some runners that slide slide again drawer with the front on it that are awful lined up. so this kind of drawers my other shop fixtures are like the ones that I’m making for this project and so they slide out. there’s kind of a shelf there there that the drawer fits onto a of like making this type of drawers because it only requires a basic box to slide in there and then I. Make it flush in this kind of acts as a divider, if I wanted do this type of drawer runners, I would also need to make a trip go across the front to divide the drawers up. so it’s just a different choice. different way of making sure I’m not sure if one is any easier than others, but I kinda like it this way. but on Cabinet, this drawer dividers actually serve another function and that’s that’s to to keep keep keep these these. these these two two two sides. sides. sides. parallel. Remember when I was was building building this this and and and this this this this Middle Middle. Middle. Middle plywood plywood plywood panel panel was was. panel was kind of kind of. bowing out. Was blowing up so this way I was just able to pull this together just provides it with a lot more structural support, especially for something that’s gonna hold as much weight that drill press. When I make drawers, I always like to make the front piece and and the back piece first because I know wide that has to be and what that width is the same width as the opening and then I just subtract a sixteenth of an inch or so from each side just make a little bit smaller so that the drawer slides in and out. And also I don’t these drawers going all the to the back of this Cabinet because that would be. That part 20 inches, so you pull drawer out would come way here and the that long really isn’t very useful. So I’m gonna shrink that down to maybe about 14 inches and then I’ll put a block in the back to stop it from going in any further. so the first thing I can do is rip all of the boards to their size to their Heights because all four of these are gonna be exactly the same. and then these two will be a little bit bigger. so I can test this out and see how they fit. So I can test out front and back pieces this way just to make sure that there’s a little bit of play side to side so that not gonna bind in there. there. So it’s like a pretty good fit. I know that I have all of the pieces cut I can cut out a rabbit the ends of each of the front back pieces to hold in the sides I a stack of data blades and my my router in my table saw again, you could use a router if you’d like hey, if that’s your thing. use router. your router. what if I What if I care, care but I but I got got. data plates. Data plates, Oh, and the thing about this is I’m using my defense in combination with my miter gauge, and yes, it is safe to do that when you’re cutting rabbits or other words, no through cuts, not cutting all the way through the board, which could which could lead to kickback. If you use both of these combinations. So again, this is okay. Don’t use this set up set up if you’re just going to cut cross cut because you’re just looking for trouble. If you do that, you can also use your CNC. Mind hiding out out back or laser cutter you phasers if you want phases. And then the drawers will fit together like magic. Now cut a quarter inch rabbit along one edge of each boards. These are gonna hold hold the quarter inch bottom panels in place I’ve switched to a smaller stack data blades and I switched over to my telephoto lens. So get this really cool cinematic close up. It’s almost like you’re you’re right there in action. Those blades are so close. you can smell them. Oh, Oh, I know what would make even better if if I low hip hop beats to relax slash study two. I need to cut out all five of the drawer bottoms, but first, first, I wanna just cut out back piece to the Cabinet. All of these are quarter inch plywood to get an accurate for the these drawers. I can just kinda and take a quick measurement this way. All of the bottoms are gonna be exact same size, but I make sure that they fit well because sometimes these rabbits rabbits are are a little little a little deeper deeper deeper or or or a a little little little a bit bit bit little. shallower shallower shallower than. than than you you plan. plan on. Okay and then the direction going this way just gonna be same length as the side boards. You should together pretty easy. I’m just gonna glue and tack them together. Even though I’m gonna tuck this into I like to square it up first using this band clamp. That’s what I’m trying to say it’s band clamp or a strap clamp. I don’t don’t know I at the same time. I’ll glue the bottom in place. Yeah, I was thinking I needed to five bases these drawers and and then actually counted the drawers and just discovered to to my my amazement amazement that that that there’s there’s there’s there’s. there’s there’s six six of of them. them. To another drawer. It’s okay, I ain’t got nothing else to do. Yeah, I can that off. Double I’m square. I’ve been since 1984. I don’t even know know why I picked that year to say that so you’re out of square on this, it’s the bottom that you wanna use to help up. so once you kind twist this into place, tap the bottom down If you don’t have a nail gun, you can use. Cnc a laser. Or a hammer and nails. Look at that, Here’s the big reveal. Just a box aside to bake, hey, remember, I was talking about rabbits and rebates. I was just the comments on yesterday’s video and Benedictine says says as someone from England, you say, say housing like sort of makes sense. It’s like a it’s like little a little House House surrounding surrounding. surrounding surrounding another another board. board. board. another I don’t don’t know know maybe. maybe. maybe maybe dato dato is cuter is cuter sounding sounding though, because because though, it it because it sounds sounds sounds like. like like a a. Dodo, I actually don’t know where the word. Comes from I’m sure somebody will tell me and I’m sure somebody will tell me all the other words that are different in England than they they are here in in America, at America, at least in California, we kind of a different language here, Oh and the hood of your car that one is kinda confused me. It’s just a bonne. It’s delicate. I just imagine when I hear somebody somebody say I bought on their car. just imagine I imagine car driving around with one of those like you know, nineteenth century bonnet. House on the prairie. One of the things I’ll need to do before I put these place. I need to send really well so they’ll they’ll be smooth and then can wax these runners also making slide in and out a little bit easier. Plus I need to make drawer pulls on those put some cleats in the then install the back to the cabinets. so take care of all of that tomorrow. I’ll see you then.
