Cabinets, Furniture, Woodworks/walter of wabash 5 drawer dresser


I'm having the hardest time taking out the drawers. It's a mahogany Walter of Wabash dresser. It has 2 metal rails on bottom of drawer. Does not simply pull out not even pull and lift up. No lever no button. Please help

Hi Lorrie
So sorry for the delay but we had a death in the family.
It looks to me like these metal rails are loose.
Even a slight variation in their positioning will cause what you describe.
The fix (if the drawer will not come out), is to remove the back of the dresser and secure the rails in their proper position. Its real easy.
Keep me posted

Hi..I can answer most questions about the repairing,stripping and refinishing of all your old furniture and wood items(the things we call antiques)I can give advice about what to buy/avoid at auctions/flea markets. I do not give appraisals on antiques.


I have been refinishing antiques for the past 30yrs. While I have taken several courses over the years,I have found that "hands on" learning is the best teacher. Perhaps I can help you avoid some of the mistakes I made while learning.
