No-sweat, flush-fit, inset drawers
Let's start with slides
For easy alignment, nothing beats the combination of side-mount slides and a false-front drawer -- one where the visible front attaches to and hides an assembled drawer box -- because of adjustments built into the slides.
First, measure the drawer opening, and cut the false front 1 /8" shorter in width and length. Next, construct the drawer box to fit the case, shortening its length to account for the thickness of the false front. Then, before attaching the false front to the drawer box, install the slides according to the manufacturer's instructions, attaching the case-side components using only the vertical-adjustment slots, shown in photo, and setting them back from the cabinet face the thickness of the false front.
