||I assembled the tables the same way. First I made sub
assemblies of the legs and the short stretchers. Then these parts are attached
to the longer stretchers. After checking for squareness, I noticed the
table frame was a 1/4" out, so I used a framing square and clamped it to
the frame to pull everything back to square.
||While the glue was drying on the legs, I made up some
drawer runners. There made of a 3/4"X3/4" pine a 1/4"X1-1/2"piece glued
and screwed together to form the piece at right. I made these pieces long,
I'll cut them to fit properly later.
||I fit these pieces by cutting them snug, but not so tight
as they spread the rails. Glue up both assemblies and hold them roughly
in position with lite pressure. Now position the drawer on the slides and
adjust to make the drawer front close evenly, and be sure the drawer doesn't
wobble on the slides. When your happy, remove the drawer and nail in place.
If you prefer, you could predrill holes, use screws and plugs. Since I
used 3/4" birch plywood, and I plan to paint this vanity, nails and puddy
will be just fine.
