I need to make some drawers for my nightstand and decided to use the drawer lock method.
They vary in diameter from 1 to 2 inches. I am not sure why the diameter would matter other than a larger diameter might cut faster. Some have the option for a set up block. Since all the drawers will be made from the same stock I am not sure the set up block is really needed. The Yonico is the least expensive and is on Amazon Prime. Rockler is next cheapest and I could possibly pick it up at the local store. The drawer fronts will be white oak, I am not sure what to use for the sides. I don,t really want to use ply as the router bit might chew it up. I am thinking maybe poplar or alder. Thanks for any advise.
