Little helpers

Most of my furniture with drawers have small holes on the backside. Here I will show you why!

For opening of the drawers.

This is a chiffoniere (typical danish high chest with 7 drawers from about 1850).  The chiffoniere and similar pieces of furniture was not equipped with handles for pulling the drawers. The drawers was pulled with the locking key.

Here is selection of  "push-sticks" I have made. ( a simple toothpick can be used too :-)

From left to right. Quick and dirty one; a bead and a toothpick cut to length. Next is for the box with the three danish pieces. Then for the 1/24 and 1/48 scale high boys.

Have fun

  1. Wow!! Again, just a tiny tiny detail of aaaaall you have done on these chests. But with such attention! Your initials, the turnings... Yah, you could use a simple tooth pick too, but tis lifts your work from just great, to really exquisite and so enjoyable
