Dovetail drawer box- 5/8" thick baltic plywood

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 (11 ply) Baltic birch plywood sides
  • Super strong 1/4" thick Baltic plywood bottom

  • 1/2" bottom recess works with Blum under mounted drawer slides (notching and some modification required)

Assembly Notes:
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, please 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.


Letter from Chad Barker;

This is our flagship drawer box product and is extremely popular. This is my favorite drawer box due to design and structural integrity. If you are looking for quality, then look no further. The price of these drawer boxes is low due to the fact that we buy this material by the truck load direct from the mill. Due to heavy volume of orders, we are able to offer this super high quality drawer box at prices lower than most companies could even purchase the raw materials.

We have experimented with many different styles of drawer boxes in our 30+ years in business. The Baltic plywood dovetail drawer box is one of our best sellers due to it incredible durability, great looks, and low price. These drawers make a wonderful addition to any kitchen or bath remodel due to the style the dovetail design brings to the cabinetry.

High Quality Custiom Drawer Boxes January 19, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Saint Paul, MN United States  
Ordered two smaller baltic ply drawer boxes to retro 1960s era kitchen cabinetry. We assembled with no trouble & finished with polyurethane--cut accuracy is wonderful!  The ply is very nice, no voids in the layers, and even the 1/4 inch bottom is very strong and not wimpy. These are better quality than expected, will be ordering more.

Drawer Boxes January 18, 2015
Reviewer: Dan Lee from Alpharetta, GA United States  
First time ordering.  I had a bathroom renovated and decided to replace the vanity door and drawer fronts and convert from overlay to face frame.  While at it I needed to replace the existing drawer boxes since they are over 20 years old.  While I have made drawer boxes before, I just didn't want to spend the time to re-learn my dovetail jig and I don't have the equipment to spray on a durable finish.  So I found Barker and could not be more pleased.  The quality of the plywood used and joinery is excellent.  The sanding and finish is also excellent.  And although I ordered at a busy time of the year, the time to delivery was very reasonable.  I would not hesitate to use Barker again.  And it helps to know that I am supporting a family run US business.  Much continued success!

Much better than I thought they would be January 15, 2015
Reviewer: steve from Palm Bay, FL United States  
Ordered 4 boxes and they came packed perfectly in such a way that shipping damage cannot occur. After I assembled them very quickly using wood glue and a rubber mallet I was impressed by the quality and craftsmanship of the product. I will gladly order again.

Dovetail drawer box January 15, 2015
Reviewer: Chris from Mission Viejo, CA United States  
The quality of this pre-assembled drawer box is fantastic.  The dovetails fit snugly and the finish sanding job Barker provided was beautiful.  I'm a first time customer and this was a test.  Barker communicated the status of my order.  The drawer and guides shipped on time and arrived in perfect condition.  The online ordering system was easy, quick and accurate.  I plan to purchase the balance of my drawers and guides from Barker in the next week.
