I am building a twin bed with three large drawers in the bottom of the bed. i have completed two of them as you can see here but with great difficulity as i am trying to build the drawers with the bottoms mount in dados. this is the thrid project I have built with drawers and the other two I gave up and just screwed or nail the bottoms to the drawers. My problem is trying to get the bottom to the right size. No matter what i do it comes to big and i try to cut it down and ends up to small. Is there a simple trick i am missing when i measure the drawer? I am using pine for the enter project as my niece wants to paint it black to match a new dressing table she got for christmas. The drawer are running on hard wood strips.
