The drawer fronts are on and the way that I built them is a perfect example of why two heads are better than one. I had planned on constructing them the same way as the pocket hole doors I made for the built-ins which involved miter joints, rabbets with the router, and glue up time. My Man was talking with me about the drawer fronts and it was like we were speaking in tongues–neither of us could figure out what the other was talking about.

Here is what he was talking about (and I felt like an idiot after I realized that this was WAY less complicated and worked just as well):
