Will using bolts to build a cabinet drawer reduce cost?

Bolts and other fasteners are frequently used to join the parts of a cabinet drawer. Biscuit and rabbet joints, as well as dovetails, are still the traditional joining methods favored by wood workers and craftsman, though. Bolts, staples, nails, and other fasteners are labor saving tools, though. Since the time that is involved in the drawer construction is reduced, the overall cost of the drawer should be lower than that seen in a more traditional construction method. There will be an added material cost for the bolts or other type of fasteners, but the cost that is saved in reduced labor more than compensates for the price of a few bolts.
