Another vote for Carcas first. My reasoning is this, any mistakes in the carcas can likely be compensated for by altering the dimensions slightly in the offending area. If the drawers were built already this could be a much bigger issue. I also look at it from a materials standpoint, there is a lot more wood tied up in the carcas of cabinet than in the drawers making a “do over” on the carcas due to a mistake much more expensive than a drawer or two. Remeber, measure 5 times, cut once! Cheers.
