Thanks James. I like the ideas presented in the video.
Mike, that is exactly how the half blind dovetail drawer construction will be done for the drawer fronts.
Sorry if I confused y'all about the rear of the drawer. These are kitchen cabinets, not fine furniture so I see no reason to spend extra time on the rears. Nobody ever sees them anyway.
I took a couple of pics of some drawers stock left over from a previous project. Looking at the right end of it, you will see a dado cut in the side. The rear piece of the drawer simply slides into it. Glue and nail and it is a done deal. And it helps add rigidity to the drawer box.
What isn't shone in the pics is the fact that I rip off the lower portion of the rear piece flush with the drawer bottom groove. That way the drawer is constructed completely, then the bottom is simply slid into the groove from the rear. Stick it with a couple of nails or staples, or screws if you like. If the bottom is damaged later, it can be replaced and not the entire drawer.
Thanks for all of the suggestions. I hope to get started later today. We are having monsoon type rains, and a few minutes ago, there was a loud explosion - like a cannon being fired - followed immediately by a loud electrical sound that sounded like all of the electricity in the power lines were being absorbed into a transformer. Scared the beejeevers outta me. Having spent my career working in a chemical plant, I was fearing the worse. But it only resulted in a brief power dip and all seems OK. I checked outside and around the house and all is well. We passed the smoke test.
I hope all the ideas presented will help others that are working on projects that require drawers.
I also included a couple of pics from previous drawers that I built using the same methods I have described. They are in the buffet built late last year. They look good.
