Is that center rail a guide for the drawers?  If so do you put a grove in the drawer or boards to guide the drawer?

All that center rail does, is keep the drawer from tipping down, when you open the drawer out a bit far....does not guide anything.   Will be adding a thin strip along the sides on the inside....drawers will be narrower, due to the face frame...just a 1 x 1.  the 1x1 strips will do the guiding...

Ahh OK I understand that.

Also I love the look of the grain on top and the sides.  It does not look like Pine.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

This is very informative. I'll be building a few chests of drawers for my kids fairly soon here, and your build-along is giving me some ideas. Thanks for sharing!

Well...Friday night a Migraine hit. No ....even sent me to the ER....was  told it most of the night....shoulders are sore from where they shot me up.....5 times....little loopy?   Still floating around today.... Crazy Crazy

Got the face frame installed....nothing fancy to it,  no special joints....went back to an older way I used..

   
Counter-bored a bunch of screws, run a few beads of glue, and screwed and glued 6 parts in place.   Will come back later, and plug all the holes with pine plugs,  and you won't see any end grain in any of them.   Cool   
   
Due to the way the plywood came to the shop....had to add the plywood back in two sections....I also do not run the back panels to the floor....carpet destroys backs like that.   Back is out out of the way of any disrespect  from any carpets.

IF I get the back done, I can start on drawers....the way I'm going, it will be one at a time...

"Whoa...BAD TRIP, Man...."
Bad enough I lost a weekend.... No Crazy

Keep getting that "Ground Control to Major....."   anyway, I did complete the back of the case.. Winkgrin  
   

Even a different colour to show it off with....glue and screws, this time...
Top drawer needed wider runners.. Rolleyes 
   
Two pieces of scrap pine, with a pair of screws each..and a spot of glue....also in the picture are the drawer guides..
   
These at least do not have to go all the way to the back..3/4 of the way is fine...Had to hoist the case up on the bench, again....was easier to get to the last two guides Winkgrin  
   
Still have to plug all them screw holes....and start on building a drawer, or three....

Stay tuned....except for Major Tom.... Laugh

I thought that was a catchy song so long ago but do not remember who sang it.
