Hello All, making a little progress with my cabinet. I’m using 1/2” Poplar for my drawers, with 1/4” Luan for the drawer bottoms. At the present I don’t have a box joint making joint made for my table saw. So I’ve cut these box joints on my scroll saw. They fit together fairly tight, and I’ve decided to pin the joints with 3” finish nails. I’ve drilled the hole just the size of the nail shank, this way when I countersink the head it is stay in place. The drawer size is 3 1/2, 14 1/2, 16”s. When I loaded the pictures, they did a reversal some how, 1st to last. Well thanks for looking

Nice work on the drawers. The box joints look great, almost like a dovetail joint yet easier to make.
