The case of the poor kitchen drawer

We pride ourselves in being a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all furniture restoration services but I wanted to take a moment to show you just how far we’ll reach to help out someone in need.  So what if it’s not a chair leg or dining table top?

The call came in around 9 am…

Me:  “Lauer Furniture, this is Mike”

Caller:  “Hey, would you be able to fix a silverware drawer?”

Me:  “Absolutely!”

Later that afternoon, the poor little drawer arrived.  If I’m being honest, it looked like it was used in a WWE wrestling match.  It was almost broken into all the pieces it was made of.  Unfortunately, the faithful silverware drawer was constructed of particleboard and alas, had served up its last silverware organizer…  Or had it?

I decided to make a new drawer.  I used solid Red Oak because it’s what the drawer face was constructed of, and the face -constructed from solid wood, not particleboard- was the only part that wasn’t broken!  Here are some pictures I took along the way.

Uh, yeah. I wanted to ask what happened to it, but because it's just a silverware drawer and it was completely destroyed - I thought that might be inappropriate.
