The picture is only conceptual, there are lots of things missing. :)

Below is a picture of a jig Jbay posted. What I don t see is an indexing stop for the drawer front edge. Easy enough after you get the distance from the edge of the drawer front to the outside edge of the drawer side. Do one side only on all fronts, and when done, set up the block at the same distance for the other side. Rout all, then route the bottom groove.

Another thing not shown and needed on the jig is something to hold the front securely while routing the dovetails. De Sta Co is a manufacturer of Toggle Clamps??. I ve only known them as De Sta Co clamps, but I see them in woodworking links and books. Easily available.
