There are a wide range of box slide slides available, so you may want to buy and install the glasses in your cool dressers before you build the boxes.

First, cut the tool to the desired height on your box. Then cut out the length to ensure that all four sides will be uniform in height. Fold the joints to make a sturdy fit for drawer corners.

After cutting the height of the box, measure from the bottom about half to three fourth inches and draw a line along the entire board. Thereafter, a slit half the depth of the wood and the thickness of the bottom out; Do this before cutting the pages to the desired length. If you install directly to the bottom, turn the box over so you look at the bottom of it.
