Stop droopy drawers
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.
