Attaching the face. The easiest way to do this is to flip the entire cubby and drawer on it’s back. Make sure the drawer box is pushed all the way in, leaving a 3/4″ gap from the sides of the cubby to the front of the drawer box.
Then place the drawer face, D, on top of the drawer front. Center the face, creating an equal gap around all sides (this is my very own trick that I have learned from experience. It will center the face on the drawer box). The gap should be approximately 1/8″ all the way around the drawer face.
Using glue and the 1 1/4″ nails, place one nail in each corner area. Don’t forget, the top of the drawer box does not extend all the way to the top of the drawer face (see below).
Then flip the cubby back over, opening the drawer up, and resting back on it’s bottom. From the inside of the drawer, nail through the front of the drawer box into the backside of the drawer face. Be knowledgeable of where you will be placing your handles, and avoid adding nails in that area. This will hide most of your nail holes!
