Ah yes, I used the same concept for some quick drawers for my basement island, but with 1/2” BB. Lock-rabbets I think?

Yes! Lock-rabbets, that’s the word I was looking for :)

1/8” is a convenient width to work with on the table saw, so I like your idea of using this here. Plus, it would help with speedy alignment/assembly.


I ll go with this. Thanks!

You’re welcome! I hope it turns out well

I ll also give brad-nailing a try. I already have enough trouble with brad nailing 1/2”, so 1/4” will be good target practice and/or help support the local hospital.

You could do both. Lock-rabbets reinforced with brads. Aim true, shoot straight ;)
