« Part 4: Episode 10 - Drawer Box Construction Part 5 of Desk Build series Part 6: Getting the Ole' Fisheye »

In this episode I go over the installation of the drawer slides. It is very important to remember that the width of you drawer box is the key to a successful slide installation.

Hi Huck,

Shouldn’t you straighten out that middle drawer before installing the top drawer?

Dennis, Yes you should straighten out that drawer before proceeding on to the next one. If you don’t then you run the risk of compounding any problems with fit, sliding, and over looks of the false fronts.

Why not just make a spacer that would mark the place for the cabinet and drawer slide ?
