Trouble with conjoining kitchen base cabinets

Hey Shannon


Hopefully you can help me with this - I have two base cabinets that I need to join together. the issue is the drawers on the cabinet will not come out ( their soft close drawers, so the mechanism are different) prohibiting me from clamping the drawers together so I can screw them together.

I have a longer clamps that will allow me to clamp them onto the outside of the cabinet's but the
3 draw cabinet is so heavy it'll be hard for me to stabilize them to get them equally joined up while screwing them together.

What's your method if you were ever face with this problem?

Predrill holes from the door opening face frame. The holes should be slightly larger than the screw you use so that the screw slips in the face frame of the door opening and will draw the drawer cabinet up tightly. Shim the gap in the top/back of the cabinet so that the cabinet faces plane smooth and run a screw there as well, then shim between wall and cabinets as necessary to screw them to the wall.

If you want to work from the drawer cabinet, remove the drawers by unscrewing them from the slides.

Those drawers slides should have a lever under the drawer bottom on each front corner that you push/squeeze to release the drawer box from the slides mounted to the cabinet boxes. If they don't then there should be maybe 2 screws on each slide that can be removed.
