    Question about cab drawer fronts

    On a 5 part drawer front, how wide do you do the rails/stile?

    Top drawer is 7 high.

    Are you doing a raised panel?

    I typically use 2-1/2” rails and stiles on my cab. doors and the same on my drawers BUT if I’m Making a bank of drawers I make all the fronts as one tall panel with all the rails 2-1/2” then I crosscut the panel to get the individual fronts. That splits the inner rails in half and gives a nice grain match.

    Nice kitchen and great guidance on frame dimensions, Steve.
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!
