Why Choose Plywood Drawer Boxes?

Probox offers a birch plywood drawer option to designers, plywood furniture manufacturers or any bespoke applications. These plywood drawers are the perfect cost-effective and robust option for kitchens and bedroom furniture.  Finish and dovetails are both striking and modern, offering an interesting alternative to metal drawers. The classic dovetail ensures that the furniture or kitchen retains its bespoke feel whilst the contemporary material looks great with smooth gloss finishes, bright colours or subtle wood grains.

Traditional Dovetail Drawer Boxes Made With Modern Materials & Methods

‘Just as kitchen designers are always looking for new ways to offer something unique and special to their clients, Probox is always developing new ideas,’ says Probox director Mark Wells. ‘Bespoke dovetail drawers are an elegant addition to any piece of furniture, and plywood furniture gives designers the opportunity to remain competitive yet still ensuring a high-quality stylish product.’

Probox’s experience as suppliers of assembled articles like spice racks, kitchen cabinet doors, and solid wood drawer boxes has put them in the lead for new ideas in traditional styles. The manufacturing facilities cover all operations, such as priming and painting, and CNC woodworking machinery means we can offer precision results and a good price point. Our drawers are created by combining fully computerised precision dovetail machines and a hand-gluing and finishing process. Birch plywood drawers


Is Plywood Good For Drawers?

Apart from the striking appearance of dovetailing plywood, it is also a very suitable material for drawers. It is very flat and stable, and not prone to shrinking. If you need to screw into it or drill through it, it is much less likely to split or crack. Of course, price is another benefit. Although we would only use high-quality birch ply for drawer boxes, it will frequently be more cost-effective than solid wood.

What Options Are There For Birch Ply Drawer Boxes?

Our birch plywood drawers are made to measure with front or side-facing dovetails for maximum design impact. We offer a choice of 13 or 15mm thick materials, and can supply in lacquered or raw finish. Other options include handle cut-outs, shaped sides, dropped fronts and notches and drilling for all the popular drawer runner types. We can supply with or without the runners, and have a choice of soft-close and standard runners from leading brands such as Blum, Hettich and Grass.  Select your options on the bespoke drawer quote page, or contact us to discuss your requirements in detail.
