No-sweat, flush-fit, inset drawers
Clean, modern drawers with precision reveals are just a few steps away.
Inset drawers give a modern, clean look to your furniture projects while speaking volumes about your craftsmanship. But the "reveals" (the gaps around the drawers) tend to highlight minor alignment discrepancies. (The fronts of overlay drawers overlap the cabinet face frame to hide those misalignments.) But here's a little secret: It's easy to make precise-fitting inset drawers with or without drawer slide hardware. Regardless of the mounting method you choose -- slides or slideless -- drawer fitting goes much easier if you start with drawer openings that are square. So take extra care when building the case.
