Solidwood Bottom

Traditionally, solid-wood panels slide into place after the sides, front, and back of the drawer have been assembled. The back is cut shorter, allowing you to slide the bottom in place, and the bottom is screwed to the back through an elongated hole to allow for wood movement. Building a drawer in this way allows you to take it apart for repairs.

PLYWOOD BOTTOM

Though reproduction builders and a few purists look down their noses at plywood drawer bottoms, they are more stable than solid wood and have great strength. A Vi-in.-thick plywood bottom can carry all but the heaviest loads. Plywood bottoms can be slipped in after assembly, just like solid-wood bottoms, or fully housed in grooves, as shown above.
