Well the title pretty much says it all. Last week I finished the nightstand glue up and now I’ll be focusing on the tops, drawers, and final sanding. Last night as I lay in bed trying to go to sleep I realized that I did the glue up without installing drawer runners and kickers first…woops. Every example I’ve seen shows the kickers and runners being part of the drawer frame construction, usually with mortise and tenons.
So my question, what is the best way to install these now that the glue up is finished. The drawer blades do not have any mortises in the back to accept the side runners and kickers. I’m guessing glue up is not a good option either since the wood its glued to would move. Any suggestions?
Here is a pic of them before the glue up, although they look pretty much the same after ;)
