I think I mentioned previously how I obliterated a kitchen drawer front whole installing a sponge drawer. I have found every imaginable design for replacement but this one. I am guessing it's a raised, arched cathedral style. I have no plans of moving soon but would like to have it on hand just in case it takes forever to get. Can anyone help? The cabinets are crappy so I didn't think it was a big deal, figured it was a dime a dozen piece. ooops.

You know smurfette, one not as scrupulous as I could make a joke about you and breaking wood.

ROFL. I have never, ever broken that wood. I'm a gentle smurf.

Clamp, what part? The bigger issues is the holes and cracks input in it screwing the hinge part in. The drawer front attaches back into natural position with a brace and will be flush. It's the cracks and crap I made a big boo boo. I thought of sanding it down, wood filler then repainting. But had hoped I could just buy a new one ready to paint. I suck. ....and there we are back to the wood jokes.

can you back the screw out, cut out the raised piece with a razor and fill it with some wood fill (preferred), auto body filler (they sell small packages for dents/scratches in the auto parts store for a few bucks), painter's caulk or drywall compound and just up the spot with some paint? Doesn't look like it would be that hard or expensive to repair based on the pics.

I would pull out any offending screws, drill out the messed up points, glue in dowel that was cut flush to face, sand lightly, prime and paint. Then carefully put any screws back in being sure to use self taping screws that were short enough to not pierce face.

Well that's what happens if you screw the wood too hard! Cracks and holes will appear. :eek:

If you place a clamp over the wood where it is raised, it will push the wood back in, hopefully completely flat.

Shorter screws, sand, fill, paint.

Still grinning over the Smurf blue nail polish. :D

Take the screws out and put shorter screws in. I would take the screws out glue in tooth picks cut flush and sand smooth. The front of the draws use body putty sand smooth and reprint.

I'm so lazy, I was just hoping to buy a similar one and pop that in place. Ok, we have established I'm lazy with wood.
