After your drawer is put together, square your drawer using a 2' square or doing diagonal measurements with your tape measure. Glue your glue blocks (small 5/16" thick boards 3" long approximately) in place with wood glue. Using a hot glue gun or a longer board all the way around instead of glue blocks also works.

Let your drawers glue dry completely before moving to the routing and sanding drawer step.
