Dovetails on Drawer Dividers
« on: January 31, 2019, 03:04:58 PM »
I am building a rural New England style cherry bureau that will have Chippendale features such as straight bracket feet and a carved shell on the upper middle drawer. Does anyone have an opinion about whether through dovetails on the end of the dividers are appropriate for the 1750 through1780 period? Should the dovetails be half blind so they are only visible from the front?
