Oh, I should just butt join the drawers, eh? That's even weaker than dadoes.

OK, you've given me nothing but shit for the entire project. How about you go play hide and go fuck yourself?

Seriously, if there's any valid criticisms you have, feel free to fold them until they're all corners, and then stick them up your ass.

Dude, lighten up. I love the project, even tho it's gonna suffer outdoors, especially n that blast furnace you call NM.

I only WISH I could make stuff like that--tho I will steal my own idea of the double-glides for either super-heavy-duty drawers or equipment platforms that have maximum extension.

Really, now? A supercomputing genius like you can't dovetail??

Dovetailing a single joint is one thing. Dovetailing four joints that interlock at the corners is something else.

I can see that. It is for a lot of people. I've done it once in a professional cabinet-making shop, and I watched my dad do it once. It took me about three days to set it up to a point where I felt confident even testing it.

My dad said it was the hardest woodworking he'd ever done (and every piece he made had very elaborate inlays chiseled by hand), having built the jig and ruined several very expensive pieces of wood trying to do it.

(Also I forgot the sarcastic smiley earlier. Dovetail joints aren't really practical for a basic cabinet, they're really just a way of showing off.)

BTW: pin/biscuit/dowel, glued and screwed is far stronger than dado. But it has to be glued and screwed.

I like to look at dovetails but would never imagine making one myself...I think it would just end badly.

What kills me is how modern people whine about making such things with power tools and jigs; while 75years ago back to antiquity, dovetails were made by hand with hand tools. And were supremely strong, and lasted forever.

A glued joint won't tolerate swell and shrinkage, which is why you cut dadoes for drawer bottoms.

I glued all my drawer bottoms inside the dado with wood glue, works great and gives the old shitty drawers a lot of added stability.

As for dovetails you don't have to make a brutal 12 notch one, I've made simple 2-3 notch joints on some stuff back in woodshop. A lot of drawing and measuring though, easier to put metal on the outside.

Your drawers are also indoors, in a climate controlled area.

That's why I said "glued and screwed"

C'mon, geniusboy! You're smarter than that!
