It’s best to build the cabinet first and then build the drawers to fit. If you are using drawer slides you can mount your slides and then measure. I always use just a little bit more room than the drawer slide maker recommends – maybe 1mm. It’s never caused me any problems to do it. To be extra sure you can usually cut a piece of drop the right length and mount the appropriate parts on the edges and test for the actual feel of the drawer slides if you want to go that far.


-- If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away. Henry David Thoreau
