I am building a bathroom vanity. My question is about the drawer boxes. I have the drawer slides that are designed for a 1/2 inch clearance per side. My boxes are not exactly 1” less than the face frame opening. How much tolerance on the size of the boxes. I am within about 1/16 of an inch on most of them, although one may be closer to 1/8 inch. Most are under size. At least one may be exactly 1” less than the opening.
Am I going to get binding of the slides? I do not have much experience with the drawer boxes. I made them with solid wood and used a 45 degree locking miter bit. The joints are not perfect due to some variation in the solid boards so that is where the variation has come from.
I have not routed for the drawer bottoms yet and have not glued them up. Looking for some advice on whether I can expect them to work OK.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
