Kitchen cabinet drawer replacement/upgrade

Mon Apr 07, 2014 7:54 pm

We have 9 kitchen drawers, and 3 of them are original to the house from 1975. All plastic, all 18" deep, and all 3 cracked and worn out. The type of slides they have keep 5" of the drawer under the countertop. Pamela asked me if I would make her 3 new ones. The new ones are 22" deep with full extension ball bearing drawer slides. The other drawers are wood-product store replacements that have the same undesirable traits, but aren't quite as bad as the plastic ones. These came out so good I will be making replacements for the rest soon.
I made these using my shopsmith, a router, and a 1/4 sheet palm sander.
Just need to paint the drawer fronts to complete the job.
