To practice my dovetails, I decided to make some drawers for my kitchen cabinets. I'm using Blum undermount slides, which requires the drawer to conform to specific specifications, as well as a few modifications to the basic drawer.
After carefully cutting my dovetails, I started to make the modifications required by the slides. One of these is to cut notches on the back of the drawer below the drawer bottom to allow the rails to run along the bottom of the drawer (see http://downloads.cabinetparts.com/auto/blumtandemplusblumotionnew.pdf, page 11). I've drawn the back of my drawer below: pins on the sides, dado slot for the drawer bottom in gray, and the cutouts required for the slides in red.
No doubt an experienced woodworker can immediately spot the flaw: the notches result in the loss of the bottom pin on both sides! It was pretty sad to cut off the pins I spent so much time on.
My question is this: I'd like to keep using this style of slides on the rest of my drawers. Are those slides just incompatible with dovetails, or is there some trick so that I don't end up with a missing pins?
Some additional context: I invested a lot of time and money building jigs for cutting dovetails, so I'd really like to continue doing dovetails if possible. I'd switch rail styles before giving up on the dovetails, but ideally I could keep the rails and the dovetails with a little help :)
