Wooden_Drawer_Boxes_for_Blum_Runners_insitu.jpgNeed to calculate what size you need to make your wooden drawer boxes?  We detail the dimensions for both drawers with a fascia, and internal drawers. These dimensions are specific to Blum drawer runners, MOVENTO and TANDEM.

1. drawer Boxes for use with Fascia

Calculating the width.

The width of the drawer is calculated from the inside edge of the drawer box.

Blum state that the internal dimension of the drawer is 42mm narrower than the cabinet opening.

SKW (internal drawer width) = LW (Inner cabinet width) - 42mm.

The maximum thickness for the drawer side is 16mm, although this does limit the side adjustment.

Calculating the length.

The length of the drawer is calculated from the length of the drawer runners.

SKL (drawer length) = NL (nominal length of the drawer runner) - 10mm.

Calculating the height.

The height of the drawer is entirely at your discretion, you'll just need to ensure that you allow for the space requirements of the drawer.

On the top of the drawer, you'll need to allow a minimum of 7mm.

On the underside of the drawer base, you'll need to allow a minimum of 28.5mm MOVENTO or 27.5mm for TANDEM

2. Internal drawer Boxes

ISKL (inner drawer length) = NL (nominal length of the drawer runner) - 10mm + X (thickness of drawer front).

Calculating the height.
