Design Closet Storage Solutions
Closet storage solutions can store small to medium tools, dishes and supplies of all kinds in an easily accessible location. Building a box is a matter of creating a box without a peak. They are typically made of 1/2-inch plywood or hardwood with a 1/4 inch plywood bottom. Most modern drawers are built in six pieces: two sides; a front and a back; a box bottom; and a decorative box face. The instructions below will create a box 18 inches wide, 20 inches tall and 4 inches deep.
Fitting of box
Cut a dado (slot or slot to hold the bottom of the box) 1/4 inch wide and 1/8 inch deep, 1/4 inch along one long side of each closet storage solutions, and front and back. You can cut with a router, 1/4 inch track bit and a fence jig, or a table saw. Attach the two sides to the outer ends of the back. Match the dadoes to the corners, place them inside the rectangle. Use glue and nails to make common safe. You now have an open rectangle 18-by-20 inches. Slide the box bottom into the dadoes, making it fit into the end dado, leaving enough space for the front piece. Glue and nail the front of the box between the sides, and make sure the dado fits over the edge of the lower panel.
Attach the closet storage solutions face to the front of the box. Place your face, good side down, on a level work surface. Stand the box on the high edge and center the front of the box on the back of the box face. Use 1-inch wooden screws to attach the window to the face. Add slides and drag to complete the appearance of the box. Most hardware comes with specific installation instructions. Normally, slides are installed in two parts, one attached to the drawer and one to the cabinet. Drawer normally draws with screws through the drawer face. Use a screwdriver instead of a drill to avoid stripping hardware.
