Dovetail drawer box- 5/8" thick solid alder

Drawer Box Only (no drawer guides)

This product is shipped UN-ASSEMBLED (5 pieces). Assembly of this item is very easy and can be done with only a rubber mallet and some wood glue.
  • Incredibly durable 5/8" thick solid wood
  • Super Strong 1/4" thick Alder bottom
  • Super strong dovetail joint construction
  • Unfinished (no paint or stain will be applied)
  • 1/2" bottom recess works with Blum under mounted drawer slides (notching and some modification required)
Assembly Notes:
These drawer boxes are a contractor grade cabinet drawer box. Please be aware that when the box is fully assembled, the joints will be very tight in order to create a seamless box. Since the joints are so snug, you may need to use a rubber mallet or a light hammer to tap the pieces together. If you are not comfortable assembling the drawer box yourself, feel free to select the "assembly" option from the drop down menu above. Barker Door can always assemble and sand the drawer box for you at a minimal charge.

Drawer Box Glue Application:
It is recommended to add a small drop of wood glue to each dovetail just before assembling the drawer boxes. Remember that when assembling drawer boxes, less glue is better than too much glue. Any wood glue will work for assembly but we recommend Titebond (available at your local Home improvement store).

Letter from Chad Barker;

The solid alder drawer box creates a unique and strong drawer box to be enjoyed for many years of use. The color and texture make this material ideal for designer kitchens. These drawer boxes look great when you have alder doors and drawer fronts as well as the alder drawer boxes. Stain the boxes and fronts the same color and prepare to impress your guests with the outstanding color consistency between your door and drawer boxes.

Incredible Value February 4, 2017
Reviewer: Katherine Midyette from Green Cove Springs, FL United States  
My husband just finished building our home and, while we did 95% of the work ourselves, we decided to take a chance and order the drawer boxes for our kitchen cabinets.  So glad we found Barker.  We received the drawers and after putting together 3 of them, my husband was so impressed with the quality of the materials and how they fit together.  Saves us so much time.  Thanks for a great product.

Reviewer: Louis Crist from Pooler GA, GA United States  
Barker does an absolutely great job with doors, drawers and everything they do. I have been nothing but pleased with their work. When an item is broken in route or a mistake is made they resolve it immediately.
