Making the Drawers

There are two identical drawers in this cabinet. Both are constructed as shown in the assembly diagram in Figure 5.

  1. Cut the following parts for the drawer from 1x4 pine: two drawer front/back pieces (O), each 12 inches long, and two drawer sides (P), each 20 inches long.
  2. Cut a 1/4-inch by 1 /4-inch dado on the inside of each drawer piece (0 and P), 3/8 inch from the lower edge, to accommodate the plywood bottom.
  3. Cut one 11-inch by 20-inch drawer bottom (Q) from 1/4-inch-thick plywood. Assemble the drawer as shown in Figure 5. Use glue and finishing nails, placing two nails on each end of the overlapping boards. The drawer front is added later.
  4. Repeat Steps 1 through 3 to build the second drawer.
