Home office drawer unit21st December 2020 — 2 minute readWe originally had a vintage drawer unit below our home office desk but it was not really practical.So I made a custom one that fit exactly below the desk. Very neat, if I say so myself.First time I cut out the sides to create a toe kick and room for the base board. Not sure if I like this method to be honest.Attached everything with cookies.Ugh, edge banding still sucks. In my next project I'll just sand and paint the edges.See where I forgot the edge banding?Drawers from 18 mm plywood. It's what I had laying around, would've used 12 mm otherwise.Installed full extension drawer slides. Relatively easy compared to undermount slides but with less options to adjust afterwards.If you use spacers to install these, then all should go well.Cut out the handles for the drawer fronts.Installed the drawers.I deliberately made the cabinet shorter so I could add some hardwood strips that I could then sand to the perfect thickness.Much better!
