The end is in sight! This episode, I make and install all 13 drawers in my lower cabinet. I show you a couple of ways to install them with some handy jigs from Rockler.


  • I dont have a table saw at this time, but is it possible to make them with a circular saw? I am just trying to get started in woodworking and I just have some basic tools. Could I use my Kreg pocket hole jig to build the drawers and would these hold up over time? Thanks for your time!

    • Yes you could and yes it should hold up. You can use your circular saw to cut the pieces to size and then use pocket holes to join them. The bottom of the drawer could just be attached by glue and brads but keep in mind the drawer bottom may fail overtime.
