In this 3x3Custom video, Tamar experiments with a unique way of making slides for the drawers of a desk. Spoiler alert: She uses dowels as the slides.
Besides the dowel slides themselves, there are some other clever ideas here, like how she cuts, spaces, and sands the grooves for the slides.
It’s also inspiring to see how she works around the limitations of her shop where she has a very small planer and no biscuit joiner.
