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 veneered bottom (mdf core)
  • 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.

5 of 5 Custom drawers March 11, 2020
Reviewer: Rob C from Middletown, DE United States  
Great solution for oddball sized drawers that aren't commercially available.  Actually, a great solution for drawer sizes that are commercially available. Good craftsmanship and price.  Will buy again if the need arises.

The board for the back of the drawer, had a crack in it. Put some wood glue in it, I figure it will be good. Drawer is nicely made.

5 of 5 Always a pleasure January 6, 2020
Reviewer: PHE from Albuquerque, NM United States  
I have ordered drawers from Barker in the past, and I am as pleased with this one as with all of the others. The order arrived quickly and in perfect condition. It is a pleasure to be able to order precisely what one needs, in a beautiful wood species of one's choice, and of such meticulous construction. In today's era of mass produced products that never seem to live up to expectations, everything from Barker represents the rare, and welcome, exception. Thanks so much!

5 of 5 Seriously Good Quality August 15, 2019
Reviewer: Michael Venditti from Denver, NC United States  
Although it took 3 weeks to get my order, and the Adler drawers are a little expensive, it was well worth it. The drawers are beautiful, well made, expertly packaged for shipping, and are very easy to put together. We will be ordering pull-out drawers for our entire kitchen. Thank you for a great American Made product!
