You can attach the bottom to the bottom of the sides but it won’t last long before the load in the drawer pushes the bottom off. Most drawers have a dodo(groove) cut around the inside of the drawersdes and front and back the bottom slides into the groove and is supported on all four sides. The bottoms are generally not glued in to allow moisture movement.
To control splintering, if you’re on a table saw keep the good side up. You can tape the kerf area on bottom side with masking tape and this will help some.
If you are using a portable saw good side down.
