I built these Storage Drawers for each of our bathroom cabinets.
Pic 1 – After
Pic 2 – Before
Pic 3 – After
Pic 4,5,6 drawer glide installation jig
Each one has over extension 16” (to accomodate plumbing) or 18” drawer glides.
The boxes are 3/4” ply and the drawers are 1/2” birch ply.
No drawer faces because they are hidden behind the cabinet doors. But I did make a jig to cut out some finger pulls. (see below)
You may have noticed some cutouts on the back side of the boxes. (See Below) This was to accomodate the plumbing under the sink. Where there was plumbing, the drawers could only be 16” deep. All the others are 18” deep.
The finish: 3 coats of water based polyurethane. The first coat acted as a sealer and was sanded with 220. The additional coats were just sprayed not sanded. Nice smooth finish.
They are Heavy, won’t slide around; but can, and were designed to be pulled out easily for any plumbing issues.
I don’t know why everyone is so worried about plywood in a bathroom. Aren’t the cabinet sides plywood? Aren’t the drawer boxes plywood? No one seems to be worried about those, yet nearly every bathroom in America has plywood cabinets and components in them. Just Sayn’
They have several coats of poly on them which makes them very easy to clean and very moisture resistant. It’s not like I’m filling them with water.
