Building a changing table for my daughter that is on the way and got mostly done with the project. I measured the interior width incorrectly and each of my drawers are about 3/32 too wide for the opening. I am planning on using full-length soft close drawer slides on this piece so I need 1/2” on each side for the slides to fit.
The sides of the drawers are 1×8 dimensional pine.
I have a 6” jointer but there is a roll pin that is for the guard cover that prevents me from putting this whole piece through.
I had considered the following:
Clamp the drawer (its roughly 18×37”) in my cross cut sled (just barely fits) and take off a little at a time on the table saw.
Are there any other options I am not considering? I do not own a shoulder plane, but not sure that would be well suited to a 1.5” wide cut path anyway.
Here is a picture of the rough layout of how the project looks. Its not constructed EXACTLY like this but for the considerations on drawer mounting the picture accurately portrays how it will go.
