Use a 1/4" dado stack in the table saw. Set it 1/4" high. Use a drawer side to get the proper spacing between the dado stack and the fence. To create the back of the drawer, make a rabbet cut on each of the short ends of the drawer sides.
Cut a groove along the length of the drawer back. The bottom of the drawer will slide into that groove (Image 1). Make the two sides of the drawer by cutting a groove into each board. Use the exact same setup used for the drawer back (Image 2). Tip: Cut the bottom of the drawer using the same setup on the table saw. Just take out the miter gauge and put in a featherboard to hold the drawer bottom against the fence for the cut.
