Hi Alex,

That’s disappointing to hear for a cabinet that is fairly common (understairs storage). Is there not another way to create a drawer in a sloping cabinet (not using a nil shelf)? It seems strange that polyboard can’t create a drawer for this type of application.

Hi, 

Sorry it took me a while to understand your cabinet,

the solution you use with nil shelves creates this issue,

I think you have reached the limits of Polyboard on this point

Ok so now I seem to have an issue with the drawer front. There doesn’t seem to be the option for me to overlay the right hand side of each drawer front. I can overlay the left but not the right. These are built in drawers but need to overlay the vertical partitions. This is not a problem I have encountered when doing the same thing with doors.

I see this is straightforward and shelves can just be added to drawers as normal……

To take this a step further is it possible to add some shelving to the drawers?

Hi Jan,

Thanks for the reply, however this is not really what I am looking to achieve. Ideally this would be a pull out drawer, such as a pull out larder in a kitchen unit. 

I managed to get the drawer created by adding a nil shelf 1mm from the top. I then created some inner tooling for the cut outs on 1 side. What I would like now is to have the other side full height (higher than the side with the inner tooling).

Kind regards

Tom

Hi,

I have an understairs cabinet with a sloping top. I would like to add some drawers, with at least one of these full height. When I try this polyboard only applies a drawer front without the drawer. I assume this is because of the sloping top. Is there a method to get this to work? I would then also like to have one of the sides full height and the other side much lower, thus enabling access?

Kind regards
