Stop droopy drawers

Gluing coner

If the bottom seats in a groove in the
drawer front, toenail the support strips
with brads short enough so they won't
pierce the front face.

Fix #1: Support strips

Begin by popping the bottom panel back into its grooves. Then add a clamp or two to hold it securely. Measure the distance from the back of the drawer front to the back of the drawer, and cut scrapwood strips to length and 2-3" wide -- one for each end and two or three in the middle, spaced no more than 6" apart, as shown at right. Thickness-plane them to fit flush with the drawer sides and front so they won't catch. Glue and fasten the strips to the bottom panel, along the sides, and to the front and back with brads or screws.
