Lay Out a Bank of Drawers Using Progressive Extension

Progressive-Extension-1

This is what we are going to arrive at.


This is an excerpt from “By Hound and Eye” by Geo. R. Walker and Jim Tolpin; illustrated by Andrea Love.

Progressive-Extension-2

The height of the face changes in a progression equal to the size of the blades, which are called “shadows” when included in the face height.

Progressive-Extension-3

Start by stepping out the two intervening blades plus three shadow blades.

Progressive-Extension-4

Divide the remaining space into three parts – the primary drawer height.

Progressive-Extension-5

Lay out the first face plus one intervening blade.

Progressive-Extension-6

Lay out the second face increased in height by a blade. The space left over is the third face.
