Thank you, Wiley. That is excellent advice.
What I need are lipped drawers.The question was whether I make them the easy way, which is by planting (glueing) on fronts. Or, whether I build them out of one piece, which is a lot more work as it requires creating half blind dovetails in a rebate.
For those unfamiliar with lipped drawers ..
This is the work of Christian Becksvoort ...
At this point, I am going to do it the hard way and make half-blind sockets in a rebated front. This is similar to building a secret dovetail.
To do this for all the drawers, the insides of the case at each end will require a spacer, essentially a 6mm panel glued to the insides. Each side will be half the thickness of the two middle drawer dividers (each 12mm). The centre dividers will be attached in a dado top and bottom.
