Step 3: Take a Tossed Pallet

Sorry I never took a picture of the pallet. I didn't remove the nails or anything. Just took a circular saw and cut out the pallet strips which were 3 inch wide, 1/2 inch plywood. After measuring the drawer, I cut the wood to the proper size. With a chop saw, I cut the dadoos into the wood

Step 4: Put Them Together
