James Krenov also used this method. I learned it from Craig Vandal Stevens, a Krenov student. They made small case work with small, sometimes dainty drawers. It doesn't work with large drawers. It's hard to build a large case to those close specifications (it is for me, at least), and the seasonal movement of a large drawer will be enough to bind it in the closely fit opening. But it's really nice on smaller work. The drawer tightens up perceptibly just as it reaches full opening and almost gives a sigh as it surrenders to be removed from the case.
