I continued with box building today and assembled the rest of the 36 fastener drawers that I started yesterday. Once assembled it was time to begin the finish. I have a lot of black Formica that I purchased on a closeout many years ago. So I decided that instead of painting the fronts of the drawers I would cover them with laminate.

After laminating the fronts I sanded them smooth, added two 1/4 inch oak runners to the bottoms and installed the pulls. I finished half of the drawers before quitting for the day, the final picture shows the remaining drawers ready for finish.
