Drawer Components


  The Frank A. Conkling Company offers a wide selection of drawer sides in wood, plywood, MDF or particleboard. Sides can be supplied in lengths or cut to size, and particleboard and MDF sides can be raw, wrapped, or “Base Coat and Print.” Fully assembled dovetail drawer boxes are also available. Please see additional details below.

Uniply Poplar Plywood Drawer Sides

  Our Uniply Poplar Plywood drawer sides are constructed from all poplar plies, with all plies laid in the length direction of the veneer to get best machining possible on the top edge. All plies are poplar hardwood and will give a similar appearance to solid poplar drawer sides. Poplar will easily stain with darker stains such as walnut and cherry. Where lighter finishes are used, we select most of the white pieces for drawer side faces, although the greener color (as seen in the top piece in the picture to the lower left) is usually acceptable for drawer backs. The normal construction is 5 plies for a 7/16″ finished thickness. Standard panel sizes are laid up for shops wishing to cut and groove their own drawer sides. We will also cut, nose and groove to your exact specifications for feasible order quantities.

Particleboard and MDF Sides

  Particleboard and Medium Density Fiberboard drawer components are available in a wide array of finishes. They can be used unfinished in lower end applications. A base coat and print process gives a wood grained look at a low cost. Components can also be wrapped with solid or wood grained papers and vinyl, or even painted.
