So I’ve been cutting down some leftover plywood(trying to use it all up) for some lower base cabinet drawers for my shop. Last night I thought I had finished all the cuts and when did a baccheck of dimensions murphy slapped me in the face. I seems that I accounted for no rabbits in the frontand back of the drawer which essentially left my drawer fronts & backs 3/4” too short. What do you guys think I should do from here. I’m trying to keep this as cheap as possible and use the ply I have at hand. I have no more ply to recut the fronts and backs so i would have to rebuy the stock to cut them.
As a side note the drawers in question are 24” deep 11” tall and roughly 13” wide. 3/4” ply sides with 1/2” bottom. I’ll be using them to store handheld power tools and such.
1. Should i use some leftover 3/4 material and glue it into the rabbits. Then cut down my fronts and backs to the right size and glue and nail them together. Essentially butt jointing the drawer instead of rabbits? will this be secure?
2. Should I bite the bullet and go spend 30 bucks on a 1/2” sheet of ply and recut the drawer fronts and backs.
