Hi Lee

The rear dovetails should be laid out once you have determined where the drawer bottom will fit. In the photo below, the rear dovetails have been fitted. The drawer back is in the vise. To the left is where the drawer bottom will fit ..

Here is a view from inside the drawer, looking at the drawer back. The "gap" underneath is for the drawer bottom ...

Again, inside the drawer looking at the drawer back, but with the drawer bottom fitted (the drawer bottom rests in slips) ...

Here is the drawer from the back with the drawer bottom removed (you can see the slips on the side) ..

Regards from Perth

Derek
