How 'Bout Angled Drawer Sides

I answered a question on another forum whether drawer sides should follow the cabinet or be fabricated straight, when the sides are angled.

I made this desk in a kids bedroom, and used side mount full extension slides. The drawer sides had the same angle as the cabinet sides. Drawer construction was a PITA, as the angles followed on all the members, including the groove for the bottoms.

This is sort of a unique topic that really hasn't been discussed, so if you have pictures, post 'em.

I see the challenge for sure. Once you angle the slide, oh boy....then the height becomes a PITA. Why could you make the cabinet and drawer side straight and just make the drawer front angled?

That would have an entirely different look.

Hey, Capt. Marvel... Nice desk!
You did yours "on purpose" which look very nice...

I was forced to do mine... only because I goofed by not getting the cabinet SQUARE! It was also a PITA... from top to bottom, there was a difference of about 1/8" spread to five drawer faces...

as long as the slides and drawer sides are at the same angle i dont see and issue. the only thing i can see being an issue is getting the drawer in or out
