    Jon, I went through this recently, building a new router table extension to my saw.

    When you begin building anything with a curve, it takes much more time. When you build drawers with a curve, they will take at least 4 times as long!

    Then, how did you fit the drawer bottom?

    Don't.

    You cannot jamb a wedge against a round pin. The wedge will eventually develop a groove, and you will then struggle to tighten it sufficiently.
