Though I've only been doing one little thing on any given day, I've made some great progress over the last few weeks.
I installed a stop at the back of the drawer cavity to prevent the drawer from going in to far. Once that was installed, I did some fine tuning on the drawer front itself so that it had a nice flush fit with the front of the front apron. I also took my 1/4" plywood and cut it to size for the bottom of the drawer and installed it into the drawer with 2 screws anchoring it to the back of the drawer. Lastly, I located the drawer knob and drilled and installed it (temporarily, need to remove it during finish application).
I have to install the desktop anchors in each of the bases but otherwise, I'm ready for the top.
My next steps will be to flatten the 2 tops which are already glued up. I've been putting it off since I started. I glued these tops up a long time ago.
After the top is finished and attached, I'll be moving everything to my garage for finish prep and actual finish application. I plan to try my hand with an HVLP so wish me luck!
