Dovetail drawer box- 5/8" thick solid cherry

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 cherry 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 cherry drawer box is a very beautiful drawer box. If you order your doors in cherry you may want to consider ordering the drawer boxes in cherry as well. Then you can stain the drawer boxes the same color as the doors and create a truly custom look.

4 of 5 Two thumbs up December 3, 2019
Reviewer: Jim from MN United States  
Very happy w/ the fit.  Pieces came ready for gluing and in general fit well.   Mortise joints were a little too deep for my liking, causing almost an 1/8" over penetration.  But all in all it did not impede the overall function of the drawer.   For the money, I would do it again, these were very cost effective solutions to my drawer needs.

5 of 5 Solid Cherry Hardwood Drawers May 10, 2015
Reviewer: Russell Hoch from Montgomery, TX United States  
Impressed.  The quality of the wood is excellent.  The dovetails require only minimum clean up.  A razor knife takes out the minor fray of the dovetail on the edge of the work piece.  
This quality of work and materials will make my cabinet project extremely simple and the cherry wood will make the inside look like a display cabinet.

5 of 5 Really great looking drawers September 18, 2014
Reviewer: Bill O'Connor from Horse Shoe, NC United States  
Barker surely does know its production schedule. At order time it was listed as 14-18 days; I received the shipping notification on day 17, and the drawers 8 days later. Sizes were perfect. I had asked for sapwood free (cherry) fronts, and while not promising, they delivered for me. My only complaint is gentle. Although the dovetail defines the outside edge, both top edges of fronts and backs were gently (1/16th) radiused, preventing a tight joint between front and sides. I made it a feature by rounding over the top ends of the sides to match. That aside, it was a thoroughly excellent order experience.
