« Part 1: After hours Part 2 of Three drawer box series no next part

The month of October I was off work recovering from hernia surgery and I made a big point of NOT going to work to make sure I heal correctly. Well I went back this Monday and it was finally able to stay after yesterday to work on this chest of drawers a bit. I got this plow plane at the flea market for 10 francs a while ago and had a chance to use it here. It took a while to get used to but it worked alright after a few pieces.

The chest is something like 700×400x 400 mm of cedar and beech for drawer runners.

If this is a 3 drawer box, it looks like the runners might be fastened to the bottom of the drawers. Is the
bottom drawer just going slide on the bottom of the box? Must be nice to be back in the shop again.
