    Build a Small Cabinet

    Anybody looked at this video/sketchup drawing on the Fine Woodworking site. If so, are the drawer runners correct in the plans? It looks like there's an extra notch in the front of the runner and the overall length is 1/16" too long.

    This cabinet?



    All the parts fit when I drew them.

    Yes, that is the one. It looks to me like the back of the front blade is flush with the back of the front leg, so I question the two notches in the front of the drawer runner. And perhaps the one notch should be 3/8 instead of 5/16 (that would explain my extra 1/16").

    I'll have to look at the model when I get home from work. When I drew it there were no conflicts or gaps between parts, though.

    Thanks Dave and here's a shot of where I'm having the problem. Probably I goofed something up, but everything else seems to fit ok.

    Charlie, I think you've got the runner turned around. There's only a tenon on front end of the runner. The rear end of the runner is notched to fit around the rear leg and the rear apron isn't flush with the inside corner of the leg. I'm guessing that's where you're seeing the double notch.

    I can't quite tell from your drawing but I do think you've drawn it incorrectly.

    I found a copy of the model on my computer. Here's a shot of the same area you posted.

    Your model looks correct- only one notch. Here's what the plan shows for the runners:

    That's odd. I wonder why that is. I'll look into it.

    It looks to me as though the wrong version of the drawing was used to create the PDF file.
