First look up IKEA Hacking page on top.
Then look at the picture below - that's the end result.
IKEA Hacking is the way to go!
Another way to build drawers.
Baltic Birch is hardwood plywood made in the Baltic region of Europe [Finland, Estonia]. Even though its thin [1/2"] it's very strong and durable because it is made of many layers [many more than typical North American plywood]. The wood itself has more texture than Canadian maple, but the colour is very similar. Once lacquered it acquires a warm yellow tone. Just a beautiful wood. And hey! it makes for great, strong drawers!
