Self-Contained Spray Adhesive Drawer

Spray adhesives work wonderfully for adhering scrollsaw patterns to a workpiece. But the inevitable glue overspray can leave a real mess on your benchtop. And if you spread out newspapers, you quickly find that the patterns stick to the newspaper as well as they do to your workpiece. This handy adhesive drawer makes the job slick, not sticky.

The hardware cloth, available from most home and garden centers, allows the glue overspray to pass harmlessly through to the drawer bottom. And your patterns won't stick to this mesh.

Build the drawer and guides as shown in the drawings. Attach the guides to the underside of your benchtop with #8x2" flathead wood screws.

If you have an apron beneath the top of your bench, you'll need to lower the drawer. Add the height of the apron to the height of the drawer guides. To keep the drawer from tipping as it opens, attach an additional 1/2x5/8" hardwood runner to each drawer guide 2-3/4" from the bottom of the guide.
