Kitchen Cabinet Drawer Construction
I have heard it said that if the cabinet drawers are well built, it’s likely the entire cabinet is well built. I believe this statement to be true.
In the case of the drawer pictured at the right, the drawer box is built of solid wood (somewhat unusual) but not one solid piece (which would be very unusual). You can tell because there are no visible plies and the drawer side is clearly made from two different pieces of wood jointed together.
The significant addition to drawers to make them functional is slides, which allow you to easily open and close them.
The slides either mount to the bottom of the drawer (shown above) or the sides. I personally prefer the bottom mount slides, but I would be hard pressed to tell you why. Perhaps it’s just personal preference.
