How Gustav Stickley Made Drawers — 2 Comments

  1. I am just in the process of building some drawers for a desk. This article had several nice features that I am going to try to incorporate in my design. It looks like the rails have slightly more reveal than the drawers. Is this correct? Anyway thanks for a nice article.

    • In most cases, nothing is in the same plane. The rails are slightly behind (about 1/16″) the vertical parts and the drawer fronts (or doors) are about the same distance back from the rails. This creates shadow lines and makes things more interesting visually than if everything were at the same level.

What do you think?
