Making the Gallery Drawers

The gallery drawers for the secretary desk presented a few challenges due to the angle from the drawer front to the drawer side. This made the dovetail joinery in the front of the drawer more challenging.  Not only is it more challenging because it’s not a 90 degree joint but since the front is profiled, care must be taken to not cut the half blind sockets too deep.  As an added bonus, the drawer bottom also has to match the profile.
