Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village in this video clip we will be assembling the drawers. You always want to dry fit the drawers together first, if something doesn't line up correctly now is the time that you will fix that. Now that we have our drawers together everything looks pretty good. At this point I'm going ahead and sand all of my pieces before I assemble my drawers. For assembly we're first going to glue up 2 of the sides and then we're going to put a couple of pin nails in just to hold it until the glue dries. Next we're going to slide the bottom in then we can install our 3rd side and lastly we will install our final side. And pin nail that as well. And now we have finished assembly of our first drawer, go ahead and continue this procedure with the remaining drawers. Once all of our drawers has been assembled we can start making the drawer front.
