Investing In Quality Drawer Boxes
Our kitchen drawers many times end up as “catch-alls”. This can mean they become overloaded and have increased weight. This puts pressure on the hardware, materials, and especially the drawer joints. When we are in a hurry we also end up pulling harder on the faces and hardware of our drawers while we are enjoying cooking in our kitchens.
Furthermore, the “tool drawer” most of us have lurking in our kitchens, ends up being a tool box full of heavy hand tools, nails, and all sorts of hardware. Having cheap drawer boxes in these situations means that the drawers fall apart and spill their contents under your cabinetry. Investing in quality drawer boxes helps your beautiful new kitchen cabinetry last longer and be more enjoyable.
Quality drawer boxes might cost a little more up front, but they will outlast the alternatives. Dovetail joinery is one of the most durable and strongest types of joinery that can be used to make drawer boxes. They include the use of wood adhesives to increase their strength and have interlocking sections of wood that act a bit like interlaced fingers which hold the drawer together. Dovetail joints are used with both solid woods and composite materials. Dowel joints are also used to make quality drawer boxes.

Drawer Box Sizes & Options
Solid Wood Dovetail Drawer Boxes
Before solid wood is used to make dovetail drawer boxes it is prepared by buffing, sanding, and finishing the wood so it is as durable as it is beautiful. This helps with the appearance of your drawers when they are open, and it drastically improves the lifespan of your custom drawer boxes.
Melamine Dovetail Drawer Boxes
Melamine is a synthetic product that is typically particle board that is covered with a plastic based type coating. The coating makes the drawers stronger and helps with the appearance of the drawers. They are easy to clean and are cost effective options.
Plywood Dovetail Drawer Boxes
Another option homeowners have when choosing the quality of their drawer boxes is plywood. Plywood is created by layering two or more layers of thin wood with their grain patterns alternating. For drawer boxes it is best to use 9 ply thick plywood so the drawer will have adequate strength and longevity. When thinner sections of plywood or substandard plywood tends to warp and sag over time. It is important to use quality raw materials in the production of drawer boxes for your kitchen, or anywhere else you need drawers.
OPTION 1: (1/4” Bottom):
Bottom raised 3/8” from bottom edge of drawer box. We use this sizing on all standard boxes receiving bottom mount or side mount drawer glides.
OPTION 2: (1/4” Bottom):
Bottom raised a 1/2” from bottom edge of drawer box. We use this on all boxes receiving soft-close under mount drawer glides.
OPTION 3: (1/2” Bottom):
Both options 1 and 2 apply for 1/2” bottoms with the exception of under mount glides. If bottoms being raised 1/2” up there will be a hole approximately 1/4” wide where the groove goes through the side and can’t be hidden by the dovetail.
