I would never put a drawer bottom on that was of a greater thickness than the depth of the dado I cut in the drawer sides, because then the breaking load will be on the bottom of the drawer side instead of the drawer bottom, and bottoms are easier to replace.

Then. Don't. Cut. Dados.

Geez, do I have to S-P-E-L-L it out for you?
