Birch Ply is a popular material choice and it is used to good effect in this design by Simon in Ilkley:
– inset drawer faces so that the laminations of the Birch Ply on the carcass edges can be seen
– routed finger pull details mean no further handle is required
– full extension drawer runners ensure that drawer contents can be accessed easily – no bending down needed to see what is at the back of the drawer!
– 12mm thick drawer boxes and 18mm thick carcass make this chest of drawers incredibly strong
Note that this unit was designed to integrate into a wall unit so rather than a solid top ‘rails’ are used. We shipped it out with scribe pieces all the way round to enable a perfectly flush install.
