no... actually i built them in my drive way in between rain storms, then kept in my basement til all was ready. if it was a new construction house it would have been on site built.So they were site built?
Always seems to...don't it?... took alot longer to make than planned
It is the PV lock for inset drawers. I wish they would make an adustment for side to side also. Then putting the drawer fronts on would be a dream.They make a locking device that has a front to back adjustment built in as well as up and down. They also have a + or - 1/16" tolerance for the width of the drawer box.
i plan to slowly aquire all the right tools like you guys have, i think the practical experiance will go further than the right tools though...Always seems to...don't it?
Anyway, it lloks like it came out nice. Good reveals on the doors. I do inset doors so much I never understand what the big fuss is about them. Make a square frame, a square door, subtract 3/16" for the door size - yer done, simple :blink:
Without the proper tooling, I could see it being a pain to do.arty:
actually all the informative threads on this site from you guys has tought me enough to feel confident that i could do nicer projects like this! any other questions i had were filled in by the blum liturature... it's actually pretty straight forward.Nice job Stud :thumbsup:
Did that thread on inset hinging help at all?
The Blum Tandem slides are a bit more forgiving than the side mount one you used.

All of which saves time in fitting those drawer fronts.
Great job. Glad to see you had the stones to give it a try from the driveway. :thumbup: That is awesome. :thumbup:
i used the tandem slides with the ajustable stop mechanism.... all it does is move a little foot in and out on both sides so the face will line up flush when done correctly. the only problem with the tandem is you loose 1/2" plus the thickness of the bottom of the drawer, but it's worth it in my book:thumbsup:I'm doing a kitchen remodel and installing new doors and drawers that are inset. I ordered the door adjusters hoping that this is going to make the process easier. All the old drawers and doors are rubbing because whoever put them in wasn't real fussy. Anyway, I'm not looking forward to it because I know it's going to be a pain. Has anyone used the drawer adjusters, the ones you mortise into the back of the front? It says the allow for 3/16 adjustment.
Nice looking piece by the way. I too, have a lack of space. I'm upgrading in less than a month now and really looking forward to the extra space.
We use them for the commercial jobs and some slab front jobs.Leo, have you used the Blum drawer front adjusters? The allow you to move the drawer front up, down, and side to side. I have not had a problem with depth. Gauge blocks work fine for me.
Yeah it's slower and those little round thingys are about 20 something cents a piece.So you need to put the hole for the thing-a-ma-jig in both the drawer and the front? Sounds time consuming for a one of custom shop. Better suited for the mass production shop. I'm glad I asked.
