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.

Dado the bottom of all four of your cabinet drawer pieces 3/8" up from the bottom of the drawer. The dado size is the width of your drawer's bottom (Usually from 1/4 - 5/16" plywood).

Tip - Cutting your back off at the top of the dado will ease your assembly.
If you do - add 3/8" length to drawer bottom.

A brad nailer or air stapler is the best way to fasten your drawer sides. Using 1" staples in a 1/4" crown stapler may be your best choice. Glue the joints - Do NOT over do glue. Pre-drilling with hand brad nails or screws works as well.

Fasten the drawers front to the two sides, then slip in the bottom and add fasten the back.

Rout the drawer top everywhere except the front - where the drawer front will be attached. Then - clean up the drawer by sanding.
