Drawer Making and Fitting

with David Charlesworth

Please note this video is only available as a Streaming Video.

In this video, David Charlesworth shows the making and fitting of a first class, English Arts and Craft’s drawer.

This exhibition quality drawer has an effortless, silky action for two thirds of its opening. It then tightens slightly in the carcase, preventing it from being inadvertently pulled out. The flush drawer slip with scratch bead, gives an elegant result, suitable for the storage of photographs and documents.
