IKEA Single Drawer in top of 30 & 36 inch Cabinets?

buildinvaApril 26, 2013

I feel certain I've seen pictures of how someone modified the top drawers of these cabs so that they had one drawer front (though they remain 2 separate drawers inside) and open together. But I've searched here and on google for an hour and can't find it! Is this familiar to anyone? Remember where you saw it?

It shouldnt be hard. You would just buy a drawer front the and the drawers would not get a drawer face rather they would both bolt to the drawer face. I dont think they make a 36" single drawer face that is that shallow though, only 30 "

I'm sure you can find a tutorial on this over at ikeafans if you search.

I remember seeing this and considered it after my drawer failure.

30" drawer, no problem, you can use the shallow 30" drawer from the oven cabinet (sold separately).

36" drawer - there is no SINGLE shallow drawer front the right size. If you care more about space than the look of a single drawer, you could use a 36" wide drawer bottom or mdf and one set of the shallow 18" slides behind 2 18" drawer fronts bolted together in the back to do basically the opposite of what you're asking. There's a tutorial for this on ikeafans.
