I mount the drawer slides (side mount) in the cabinet. Then measure in between to make sure I got the right width. Just like Cabinetman and others have said, the 1 1/16 inch seems to be just right. For the ones I have made, I cut the front to the corerect width and remeasure to make sure everything is right on the money. The sides are made to fit the width, whether it is dovetail joints or the front is rabbited. After doing a few now, they have all turned out to have a good fit.

Here are several examples.
Hope this helps.
