My rack has recently been glued up, so me and my teacher Mr. Santucci (btw he has an awesome beard) decided we were going to put drawers in between two of the bottom shelves. There will be probably about seven inches in height but only about fine and a half deep. I added a divider half way in between so I can make two drawers going across. Any suggestions on what ways/steps to build them? I will try to add a pic later

Don’t know what your stock is (hardwood, plywood), but either way, locking rabbet joint is a good strong choice for the drawers, and is pretty simple to produce if you have a dado set.

Ok, here is the deal … You will be sent to your room if we don’t see pictures, ... soon
+1 on locking rabbit joint … A bit intimidating for your first ones, but after that they will be the joint of choice …

I was thinking about some half-blind dovetails. we have a jig available, they are pretty freakin strong, and look freakin awesome too.

Tooch, are you the teacher with the awesome beard?

If you have the jig, that’s not a bad route to go. If you’re still learning, you could do one of each to familiarize yourself with them. You wouldn’t see the difference with the drawers closed.

Tooch, offer him extra credit if he does hand-cut half blinds :)
