In this episode, we continue to develop the rotating drawer. Paul’s using different methods and techniques, as well as tricks of the trade, to ensure a good fit with the drawer bottom, and then the joinery too. Fitting the curved back to the housing dadoes and then, too, fitting the drawer bottom is very different than the usual drawer construction methodology. The result is a very unusual drawer that disappears in the apron when closed. Fascinating!

    Would it have been a good idea to make a groove in the curved back of the drawer ? That would have solved the problem of the gap between the bottom and the curved back. Of course this would have required to split at least two stripes in order to get the depth of the groove before gluing up the curved side. Not easy I have to admit, even if it could be possibly done in two steps : a rebate when gluing the curved side, then adding a stripe (or two) under the bottom of the drawer.

    Nice to see the process of what it take to fit these fine details. Taking apart and adjusting and putting back together and taking apart and adjusting and putting back together and so on. Very nice.
