Default Re: general plywood thickness for cabinets

I used 1/4" Baltic birch for all of my cabinets and the short queen sized bed. Great stuff, light, strong, stiff and straight. I used full length glue block in every corner. Then screwed and glued.

Check out Apple Ply at Cross Cut, used 1/2" and 1/4" in my cabinets. Very nice material but expensive. I am also on Vashon send a message if you want to check out our van.

Here is what I've been doing:

I cut the bottom using 1/2 Russian birch, it's a 7 ply and very stable strong.
Then I take 2" wide strips of the same birch and glue / nail brad this 2" piece to the outside edges of the bottom of the drawer.
Basically now I have a box that will become a draw except the sides are only 2" tall.
Finally I wrap another ring of 1/4 around the outside of the 1/2 thick base and glue and brad it together. Cut this piece as tall as you want the finished draw.
You can cut the 1/4 as tall as you like. I have some drawers that are 12" tall.
Attaching the corners of he 1/4 ply can be accomplished by clueing 1/2 square stock into the joint. Done:
