Many thanks for this thread, Colin. I really like it. So here’s another one
There’s a thin line between a real mess at the workbench and a constructive chaos.
The timber yard is very generous with giving away form plywood in small sizes for free. I used one piece to make a jig for chiselling and planing long dovetails (rebates bevelled at 1:4); hoping that when these drawer runners were pressed into their sockets (housings/dadoes), they would align square and true with the rails of the drawer dividers. That they did, and as an additional benefit a real problem was solved. Bad cupping in the drawer sides was flattened out with these sliding dovetail drawer runners acting as crossbars.
