Drawer box and rollout shelf construction

Drawer boxes are constructed with 1/2" thick unfinished or pre-finished furniture grade plywood sides, dovetail joints on all four corners and a standard matching 1/4" thick B-3 grade plywood bottom.  1/2" bottoms are available as an upgrade.  All material used is of Standard Grade and will consist of natural birch color.  Top edge banding is real Birch wood.

Some companies will tell you that dovetail joints and a UV clear coat finish is not important...  That's because they can't offer it, especially at these prices!

All bottoms are recessed 1/2" and all sides have 1/16" eased edges.  Drawer boxes are shipped pre-assembled.  Notching for undermount slides is available (release clips are not supplied unless ordered with our Vitus Under-mount slide).  We strongly recommend a 1/2" thick bottom if your drawer box or rollout shelf is 24" or wider.

Drawer Bottoms Are Inserted Into Dado Groove For Strength
