Now cut a VV-thick piece off the back of the blank. (This piece, which will be glued back on after you're done cuttingthe drawers out, will be the box's back.)
Make a copy of the pattern at right and attach it to the front of the box blank using spray adhesive. Follow the solid lines to cut out and remove the drawer blanks from the center of the box. Perform any finish sanding on the interior of the box at this time.
Next, glue the back you removed earlier back on the box. After the glue is dry, cut out the outside box shape and sand the exterior smooth.
To form the drawers, a '^"-thick front and VV'-thick back are sliced from each blank. Then draw the cavity outline (the dotted line on the pattern) on the front of the remaining drawer blank.
To give the drawer cavity square corners, make the two side-cavity defining cuts first. Then start at one top corner of the cavity and cut diagonally toward the bottom of the cavity, cutting along the bottom toward the opposite corner. Cut back along the bottom line to finish creating the drawer cavity. Then glue the drawer backs and fronts back on the drawers.
