I am not awake yet because I loaded these pictures in reverse order, so you will have to start at the bottom and work your way up. Sorry to make you think in reverse but I am not smart enough to change it. The advantage of this plan is that the bottom is not likely to come off and then you can't open the drawer and all you can really do is completely break the stupid thing to get it out. We have all been there and it is no fun. So my advise is whenever you are buying something with drawers weather it is in a furniture store or at a flea market always pull the drawer out and look at the bottom, if a thin piece of wood is stapled to the bottom then just put it back and say "No thank you".
And then slip the drawer bottom into the groove. Everything is stapled together and then you end up with a pile of drawers.

We put glue into the grove

So this is how we make drawers, first our way is not the best way. Ideally the ends would be dove tailed but we do not have the tool for that. We want it but somehow the things we need end up taking all the money. Notice in this picture the groove in both of the boards.
