Question About Drawer Stops


Recommended Posts

For fluch front drawers I glue one or two blocks to the rail under the drawer so the drawer front hits them.  Alternatlely I clue blocks to the rail guides at the back of the drawer if I have enough room back there.

Sorry guys...I mis phrased the question. The question is how you limit the drawer from pulling completely out of the cabinet? In the past I've used a small, narrow piece of wood screwed to the inside back of the drawer which can be rotated upward to stop against the outer drawer blade as I pulled the drawer out; however, I can't use this type on my latest project.

I usually just screw a small piece of wood to the upper divider. It swings down to catch the back of the drawer. one has to be careful with this method if the divider is very narrow or very wide. Usually I don't though because it can add some complication to the drawer situation if the dust frame doesn't allow for a swinging tab to be installed.

My most recent dresser design doesn't really allow for drawer stops to be installed that wouldn't interfere with the drawer operation. The only saving grace is the drawers will start to fall and bind if they are pulled more than 95% of the way out.

In my nicer piedes of furniture, I don't use a stop to prevent the drawer from pulling out.

I think that hinge would need to be mounted such that the loose leaf would fold inward as you insert the drawer, and fall into a notch cut in the drawer side when the drawer was pulled out. To remove the drawer, reach inside and hold the hinge leaf out of the notch.
