Introduction: The Drawer
Cabinet: Width 40.5 x Length 70 x Height 95 centimeters.
Drawer: Width 47.5 x Length 55 x Height 11 centimeters.
Hello, In this project, I will use the old siding panel and plywood to make it into the drawer by using of the original material and touch up with acrylic paint. The cabinet will have 5 drawer and no handle. It’s easy to pull out the drawer and just push it back. For the cabinet I use wood frame cover with plywood and make it looks like metal finished. It add some classic or vintage look to the cabinet. The cabinet can be use in any rooms and can be decorated piece as well. It’s will make your room looks good. Let’s begin.
Supplies that you need to do The Drawer’s project.
1. Old wood siding panel, plywood thickness 6 millimeters.
2. Drawer rails 5 pairs, wood glue, sand papers, and nail gun.
3. Spray paint (Red brown, copper, silver), arcylic paint (Light green, light yellow), clear lacquer.
Step 1: Make the Frame
Cut the wood frame, I use parawood into small pieces, then apply the wood glue and use the staple gun to attach at the end of the piece and the corner piece to make in the box frame. Next I attach the ply wood inside by wood glue and nail gun. At this point I have like a square box, just the inside and start to attach the plywood on the outside the dimension (95 x 40.5 = 2 pieces on the sides and 70 x 40.5 = 1 piece). Next cut the strips on plywood to attach at the front and the back side which is 5 centimeters wide.
Step 2: Make the Drawers
Next I begin to cut the plywood to make the drawers. Then I cut the plywood to sizes (55 x 11 = 10 pieces) and (47.5 x 11 = 10 pieces for the side). Next use the router cut on one side for the plywood at the bottom (55 x 47.5 = 5 pieces). Then apply the wood glue to all edges and the bottom plywood and put nail gun to all the pieces. Now it should look like the boxes. Next I cut the old siding panels to make the front of the drawers. Now attach the front panel to the drawer with the screw in the inside. Then measure the inner panel to attach the drawer rails and attach at the bottom of the drawer.

That's a really big storage bin, but all the better to hold more toys in the playroom for the kids I reckon! It might be a little hard to dig down to the bottom of the barrel if you have a lot of little toys though. Otherwise, it's a really neat concept!

I must admit I am a little confused. Are the drawers designed to be sticking out or was that just for the sake of the photo? There isn't a good photo with them all pushed in, so I am not sure...

The design of the drawer from the beginning is that the drawer to stick out from it box frame, the front and the back about 5 centimeters. It easy to open the drawer on the side., to catch the front edge of the drawer.
