In making a cabinet containing 5( drawers of various sizes, I used the method shown in the sketch for making the frame. The horizontal strips A should be all fastened together wher sawing the notches to fit over the up rights. The uprights B should be sawn in the same manner. It is best to round the front of the rear uprights slightly and also any other places where the drawers might strike when pushing them into place. The length of the runners should be 1 1/2in. less than the length of the drawer. - Contributed by J. H. Dickson, Polk, Pa.
