Locking Rabbet Joints
Looking for a strong, simple drawer joint? We show you how to make two types of locking rabbet joints.
Locking rabbet joints are strong, simple joints that work well for drawer construction. Depending on the type of guide system that supports the drawers, we use two different types of locking rabbet joints: lipped and flush. This step-by-step article will show you all you need to know to put both of these types of locking rabbets to use in your work.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
