What I do is make the drawer front 1/8" smaller. then I use Formica sample chips, which are very close to 1/16, u may have to bild em up a tad with blue tape, once you get the shims where the fit is as you like, hot melt glue a dab in center of drawerbox, set the front. then drill and screw from inside the drawer. Hot melt holds great and is squishable/moveable for a few seconds b4 it sets:smile:

As Mike said :}:} most time it is easier if ya let the glue get cool first, it is more brittle and pops easier. NOT that I have a reason to know this :laughing:
