Box Joints anyone?

Box JointsThe focus this week has been a small walnut cabinet with one file drawer and two small storage drawers.

With a piston fit, these drawers glide perfectly.  Totally old school here, no metal slides. 

I’ve seen cases and drawers built like these before in a few antiques I’ve restored.  Incredibly strong and the variable wood species (poplar drawer sides/oak secondary carcass wood) will reduce wood to wood wear.
