Hold the drawer in position in the table and mark the position of the grooves in its sides on the legs and rails. Cut a corner strip for each corner of the drawer (page 104), making the dadoes as wide as the grooves. Screw two corner strips flush against the side rail and leg at the drawer front and use clamps to hold the two remaining strips flush against the side rail and cross rail at the drawer back; the dadoes in all four strips should line up with the groove marks. Cut two drawer slides to span the gap between the dadoes along the side rails, less Vie inch for clearance. Notch the front end to fit around the legs, then slip the slides into the dadoes (right).
