placing 2 drawer fronts in wide cabinet w/ partition

Postby John Vickerman » Fri, Dec 18 2009, 7:41AM

I have a wide face framed cabinet with a centered partition and a stretcher. Placing 2 inset drawer fronts, I am able to place one but not a second, how do you place it?
I could place a double door but this would create problems with hardware holes.

thank you in advance. :wall:

John,

Is this what you are trying to do? If so, I just placed the drawers in drawer box editor.

John,

Here is another one I did with placing two display boards as drawer fronts.

You can take it to part editor to put an edge on it if you want.

Here is the cabinet, it does not make sense that I would need to use a display board, If I could create a double door, a double drawer front would be a nice option also.

Thanks

George, I am not able to highlight the area, there is a partition and when setting the first drawer front the right side reveal is 1/2 the opening minus 1/16.

If I place a double door there and then a drawer box my hardware holes would not be correct.

I most likely am missing something quite simple.

Thanks
JV

John, if you hilite the opening and add a mid stile, you can then add two separate fronts. Adjust your mid stile to 1/32" in width, and adjust your gaps for correct clearance and it should show properly. Note: Make your Mid Stile from a different material like DNC so it doesn't confuse your cut-list. Also watch your Drawer box side clearances. HTH.

Rick, I considered this and will try it now, sure enough it works, I will need to try the same thing with a euro style cabinet.

Thank you, John Vickerman
