DIY toe kick drawer instructions

BellsmomOctober 19, 2013

I KNOW I used to have instructions on how to build your own toe kick drawers. But now that I am ready to do it, I can't find the instructions.

Does anyone have a link to good instructions on DIY toekick drawers? i remember generally how to do it, and I know it wasn't complicated. Just don't want to have to reinvent the wheel if someone can tell me where to find it.

Thanks as always,
Sandra

This is the second time today I posted a request for info after searching for an answer through Google, and then returned to search for more and found what I was looking for. (The first time was on the cooking forum.)

If anyone has better instructions than the link I will post below, I would love to know. But the link below is the site I was looking for.

I've never done it, but FWIW, here's a tutorial from ikeafans. Between the two you should be able to figure it out:

Thanks everyone.
A question: Why buy an Ikea drawer? It can't be that hard to make a drawer that will take no more use and weight than a toekick drawer. A bit of glue, some nails or screws, 5 pieces of plywood, and you've got a drawer.

This is a serious question. Is there any reason a simple open box won't work for this kind of drawer? With a wide toe-kick compatible front, of course.
