Vertical Drawers Wall Unit #6 Unité murale à tiroirs verticaux

La lame du banc de scie inclinée à 45° et le guide parallèle ajusté, je coupe des languettes biseautées de 4″ (10 cm) de large (French cleats).

Pour couper facilement de si longues planches, je n’ai qu’à enlever temporairement le guide de ma table à toupie (défonceuse), tel que montré en arrière plan.

The table saw blade tilted at 45° and the rip fence set, I’m ripping 4″ (10 cm) wide beveled strips (French cleats).

To rip such long boards, I only have to temporarily remove my router table fence, as shown in the background.

Ces coupes en biseau laissant un bord très tranchant, je replace la lame de scie à 90° pour couper cette pointe coupante.

Those bevel cuts leaving a very sharp edge, I reset the saw blade back to 90° to rip this sharp edge.

Une première longue languette est vissée au mur, dans chaque colombage, la pointe du biseau vers le haut et éloignée du mur.

The first long strip is screwed to the wall, in each stud, bevel up the tip away from the wall.

À la scie à onglets, je coupe deux languettes pour fixer en arrière des caissons.

At the miter saw, I’m crosscutting two cleats to attach behind the cabinets.

Les languettes assujetties aux caissons avec des serre-joints, je trace et poinçonne l’emplacement des vis, en m’assurant que les vis seront enfoncées dans les côtés, et non dans les panneaux arrières.

The cleats clamped to the cabinets, I mark and punch the screw hole locations, making sure the screw will be driven into the sides, not the back panels.

Tel que montré, j’utilise un crayon pour aligner le foret parallèle.

As shown, I’m using a pencil to align the drill bit parallel.

Les languettes, biseaux vers le bas, iront s’accrocher dans celle fixée au mur.

The cleats, bevel down, will lock on the one attached to the wall.

Pour aligner le caisson, un tasseau de même épaisseur est vissé au bas des caissons (flèches). Ces tasseaux viendront simplement s’appuyer au mur.

To align the cabinets, a cleat the same thickness is screwed at the bottom (arrows).

Those cleats will just lean against the wall.

C’est un bon départ et je suis très satisfait.

Je remarque déjà que les caissons de Mélamine blanche reflètent la lumière des plafonniers fluorescents de façon très efficace.

It’s a good start and I’m very satisfied.

I already notice that the white Melamine cabinets reflect the light from the fluorescent fixtures very effectively.

    Salut Serge,

    Nice use of space. It is often difficult to maximize space over your head, as being able to reach things becomes an issue. I’m curious why you chose to put the drawer slides at the bottom, rather than the top.

    • Salut Chris,

      I have more ideas about maximizing over head space, meaning more projects to build and share. The idea of putting the drawer slides at the top never crossed my mind ! According to me, they were meant to be installed at the bottom and support the drawers as guiding them in and out. It’s as simple as that !

        In my experience with this type of guide they do work better in compression rather than in tension. I might build something similar, but with vertical partitions for mounting the guides in pairs, one above the other,
        Very clean job!

        • Loren, using guides in pairs between partitions is the best installation. I went for the cheapest, therefore demonstrating it still works.

          Thanks for the further information and for your kind words.

          Best,
