No-sweat, flush-fit, inset drawers
Now let's try slideless
For slideless drawers you'll once again size false fronts 1 /8" shorter horizontally, but only 1 /16" narrower vertically than the drawer opening. Place the completed drawer box in the opening; then, use double-faced tape to attach the false front to the drawer with the bottom edge resting on the case and an even reveal on the sides and top. When you're satisfied with the fit, remove the drawer to predrill and screw the face to the drawer box.
To create the bottom reveal, plane or rout a 1 /16" chamfer along the bottom edge of the false front, as shown in the photo. The shadow created by this chamfer creates the bottom reveal.
