How to Make Dead Simple Drawers - No Nails and No Screws

In this video I show you how to make dead simple drawers that do not require any nails or screws. All you need for these builds is your table saw, a dado stack, clamps and glue. I've always enjoyed making drawers this way and I'm happy to share the process with you. YOU MUST USE 1/2" STOCK FOR THE DRAWERS FOR THIS METHOD TO WORK

    Good video! Thanks! And thank you for pausing and swapping out that throat plate. I was cringing! The QQQ method for drawers is generally credited to Steve Phipps. Here’s the original article Steve wrote about it. Note that QQQ works only if you’re stock is exactly 1/2 inch thick. www.thisiscarpentry.com/2014/09/19/the-quarter-quarter-quarter-drawer-system/

    In addition to swapping the throat plate (or instead of), perhaps do this... Make certain the wood used for the fence extension is of uniform width (i.e. height when placed on edge). Stand the drawer end pieces on edge up against the fence. Place a scrap piece with a flat edge in top of the fence behind the piece being cut. Tightly clamp together. You now have a guide which runs along the fence top, keeping the piece being cut at the correct height. (BTW, not a crafter. Just a retire computer logician and puzzle/problem solver.)

    That's a very good saw you have. Very solid. Too bad my table saw is a $200 piece of shit, where even the table itself is neither solid nor flat, and the fence is a wobble with plastic connectors. Its actually hard to get ANY kind of table saw on this island...

      @Penalty Box Woodshop I forgot the one positive :) I prefer to be on this island with a shitty saw, than being somewhere else with an awesome saw ^^ There's always drawbacks... But I did get an awesome welding machine last year, so it is conceivable, that I could build my own table saw with some instruction from FRwatch! :) People on this island either cut with chainsaws or they have some really dangerous make shift saw with NO FENCE, no protection on the blade, and they just eyeball it as they push it through. Its insanely unsafe, but that is how 90% of all lumber gets cut! I'magine getting hit by an accelerated 4x4x10 foot piece of mahogany, if you didn't pay attention for one second.... And then, so much wood is wasted, because of the extensive planing you have to do. I got tired of the electric hand planers and finally bought an old fashioned Stanley bench planer with low attack angle.

    You did not need to use that different throat plate, fingers work much better - or a thumb will do a good job of holding it..if that did not work for you, you could clamp the workpiece to the fence board you had and more the tall board forward - many ways to do it..but the easiest are fingers, then thumbs! also bleach cures COVID-19

    If the setting on the table saw is 1/4” 1/4” why not simply lay the sides down rather that’s stand them up for the cut? Wouldn’t it accomplish the same cut in a much safer way?

      That would require moving the fence. I would like to leave in the one set-up until box(es) are all complete and I know I don't have to cut a replacement piece for one that is damaged or was mistakenly cut on wrong side.

    "Hey kids don't do glue ups on your table saw"? who is your audience?.. actually I really like the swap out of the throat plate even if it appeared to be staged. I read years ago in Fine Woodworking they did a survey of shop accidents and 90% of woodworkers say they saw the potential for the accident before it occurred. Since reading that article I have paid attention to that little voice in my head that says "hmmm is this safe?" The other thing worth mentioning is the use of a tape measure for precision measurements. I would never include the end clip for measuring from a fence or for a drawer bottom... the clip gets bent or twisted and can be out by 1/16" use a steel rule or calipers.

    Good job on the video, and nice technique! Taking a few seconds more on each glue joint, and properly brushing glue on the entire glue surfaces would improve the joints even more. It's the only way to ensure that glue covers the entire joint surface, which is how you achieve maximum joint (or glue up) strength. When glue joints fail, it is usually because the surfaces were only partially covered. Thanks for the video.

    An alternative to swapping out the throat plate could be to set a 1x4 remnant on top of your fence extension and clamp it to the drawer end plate (at 90 deg). Then you can use the fence as both lateral and vertical guide during the cut. My kingdom for a table saw... but I have no room for one! Thanks; great concept!

    I've known about this method for a good thirty + years but it's good to educate the "newbies"! The only thing I would add is to make sure to dry-fit the parts BEFORE applying glue to the joints! (one of the woodworking Golden Rules!) I've learned the hard way it's way worth the extra minute or two to check that all your parts are going to fit and there's no hidden surprises. It's a big hassle to deal with having to make a slight trim cut AFTER there's glue on the piece! You DON'T want to get glue on your saw blades. The reason I'm mentioning this is it's happened to me more than once where I cut the drawer bottoms ever so slightly too wide (or long). Even a thirty-second is too much and will cause you to not be able to get a solid glue joint when clamping. Now days I actually make a point to cut the bottoms a 1/32" to 1/16" narrower to avoid any headaches. The bottoms are basically just "free-floating" in the dados. Just be sure to double check for square after clamping!

    OK, last comment for now...thanks for using just wood glue to hold this together. Wood glue holds about 3,600 PSI so if you glue properly, is there really much need to screws in builds like this? I watch a channel where a guy uses pocket hole screws for everything, where in most cases I feel he could skip that step.

    My next project is using my router to trim the edges slightly on my cabinet doors and my cabinets have face trim. My wife wants soft close hinges and the doors are so thin that I'm afraid by the time I make the holes deep enough to recess the hinges, the center of the forstner bit will pop out the front and ruin the door. 30+ year old cabinets so if I screw up one door face, I need to build a whole new set of cabinet doors for my upper and lower cabinets. I'm not totally against building new doors, but if you have any better tips, I'd love to know what they are so I don't have to build 17 new cabinet doors.

    I wasn't thrilled with this video at first, but it interested me enough to not skip it...then the more I watched the more I liked the video, and by the end I was in love with this video and subscribed. Thanks for swapping out the throat plate. I was watching and thought this piece of wood is about to drop and either kick back and hurt him or ruin the piece of wood, but I'm glad you stopped to fix it and added this correction to the video. We're all human and we all make mistakes, but you're honest enough to leave them in as teachable moments. Subscribed, and saved to my file of videos for reworking the cabinets in our kitchen. The only negative about this was the links you included. I work in IT and I ABSOLUTELY HATE tiny URLs like this. They redirect you to a new link and although I do not work in cyber security, that's never something I trust because you either have to take it on faith the person isn't sending you somewhere bad, or take the time to put the tiny URL into a site and have it resolve out the true URL that is hidden. It's nothing personal against you, just a good general rule of thumb to follow to keep your PC safe from malicious code. I have enough faith to use these, but I'll still cringe when I do.

      @Penalty Box Woodshop I totally understand. If you don't work in IT and have some familiarity with IT security, you'd not have a reason to know these things. I still click these links because most woodworkers are not going to have all the IT savvy to be malicious in that way. There are exceptions...our system administrator on our network years ago was one of the best woodworkers I know, and if he wanted, he could have done anything malicious he put his mind to...but thankfully he wasn't that type of person. :0)

      @Penalty Box Woodshop It was like a deja vu back on the jobsite when I saw a "professional" carpenter working the miter saw with his right hand, holding the material with his left....and the material was on the RIGHT side of the blade....so if I hadn't pulled the plug on the saw he would have cut his left arm off.... "what'd you do that for" he screamed? SO YOU DON"T CUT YOUR ARM OFF I wouldn't have... Yeah? I pulled the sleeve of his coat, look at the saw mark on your EFFIN COAT (there was a tear right where the blade knicked his coat).

    Nice video. You could also have just clamped a scrap piece on the back of the drawer side to ride on the fence, to keep it from falling in the hole for the blade. Secondly, that nice big flat surface is a good place to work, I keep a few large pieces of cardboard to lay down on my top to keep from messing it up.

    A real lock joint is stronger and nicer but a lot harder to setup. Not one of those fancy router bit joints either. Although they're nice too.

    The drawer bottom panel really needs to be glued in as well to make the whole drawer feel solid. When the panel isn't glued it takes on this weird flimsy rattle that's really subtle and hard to describe but has a big influence on the overall feel of the drawer and whatever furniture it goes in. You can hear what I'm talking about at 11:32, when you tilt the drawer and it comes back down on the table you briefly hear the sharp buzz of the loose fitting panel. Just my opinion anyway.

    Gotta love a guy who makes everyday "issues" on camera and shows you his "fix" on camera, and why. How many of us have gone to glue up, and forgotten to stage their clamps in easy reach? :: raises hand :: Most importantly, I saw your table saw throat plate issue when you went to cut those end pieces and thought, "Good gracious, doesn't this guy like his fingers?" Nice catch, good solution, and you saved someone's fingers with this video.

    I know I'm late to the party but changing out that throat plate, there was a drop of about a 16th of an inch or so, where as the previous plate was flush with all your other cuts. I'm sure the end result didn't matter but I can't be the only one who noticed that.

    The 1/4, 1/4 system of cabinet drawer joinery in drawer construction has been around a long time I was using it way back in the 60's when I was an apprentice in the L.A. county Cabinet Makers Union 721 and I still use this method to this day. Thanks for Showing its use in your video.

    I'm an old retired finish Carpenter. I've made probably hundreds of drawers with this method. I however have used different dado widths and lengths and tongues, to accommodate different drawer side thicknesses. This is one of the most efficient ways to build many drawers at a time. I don't think I would pin those joints but everybody does what he wants. It's good to see the trade carrying on. Keep up the good work.

    Very good. My only suggestions to folks trying this would be to go ahead and just use the same 1/2 inch stock for the drawer bottoms, cut them ahead of time just like the other pieces - cut them 1/4" less than the length of the sides and the same. size as the front and back. Then just run the four edges over the same setup creating a 1/4" rabbet all around. Only other suggestion would be to cut off the back at the top edge of the dado - you can then assemble all four sides and the slide in the bottom (and replace it later if tacked but not glued. With this method, no table changes at all after setting up the quarter, quarter, quarter method. You did not mention how to measure the two sides and the front and back. For the two sides, just cut. the to the full desired length of the drawer and for the front and the back, cut the the desired full width less the size of the material you are using. Here is an example: want a 15 x 20 x 4.5 drawer. Cut the two sides at 20 x 4.5 and cut the front and back at 14.5 (15 width less size of material or 1/2 inch). Cut the bottom same width as the front and back and the length of the sides less 1/4 inch (this bottom witll be flush at the back with the outside of the back where you have cut it off at the dado top. Stumpy Nubs has a great video on this process as well.

    Could I just stick two of the exact same regular kerf saw blades together to make a 1/4 inch dado, or do they have to be special blades?
