I would like to buy an armoire and install drawers in it. Is it possible
to buy some basic drawers somewhere? I checked HD and Lowe's and they
have drawer slides, but I didn't find any drawers.
Many thanks in advance,
Drawers are made to fit an opening and there are no standards for
that. Ask a woodworker or make your own boxes. Easy to make with a
tablesaw. For corners you can use a drawer-lock joint or box joint
for stength, or a simple rabbet joint for shallow or small drawer
boxes. A dovetail joint is the strongest (and nicer looking) but
usually not required with slides. Flush fit drawers are very nice but
challenging, lipped drawer fronts install faster.
Check with local cabinetmakers before you make your decision. I get
paint-grade drawers for about $20, plus another $7 or so for the false
front. Finish grade isn't a whole lot more. I can't make them myself
for that price.
