We attached this 1/2" plywood panel
to the sides and back with #4x1" F.H.
wood screws, and to the front with
pocket screws.

To reduce the weight but retain the
strength, cut out sections from the
middle of the plywood panel and
attach with glue and screws

Fix #2: Secondary bottom

If the bottom won't stay in the grooves, or if they're broken away and you need added strength and rigidity, reinforce the bottom panel with a plywood panel cut to fit perfectly between the drawer front, sides, and back, as shown right. Use the thickest plywood you can that won't protrude below the drawer's sides. With the original panel back in its grooves, glue the new panel to it and secure it on all four sides with screws.
