no previous part Part 1 of Drawer Wagon for the study desk for my son series Part 2: top, sides and bottom »

So now is the time to make the drawer unit wagon that just go with study desk for my son.

It is just simple structure, but I drew a plan anyway.


This is a plan before the drawers, just to check the sizes.

First, I thought to make it without slide rails, which exposes metal parts to my wooden work, but the drawers have to be pull easily with one hand, and now I think it’s better to use the slide rail. Especially this is for my little kid, it will be harder for him to pull the drawers with two hands while he sits at the desk… What do you think?

This wagon is not something so special, but the only high-light is the use of the top. It usually go under the desk, but you can also put it aside, and bring it higher at the same level of the desk, it will be a wider desk top he can use. I am thinking of 2 small book stands will be a good idea to put underneath this wagon, so it makes the wagon as high as the desk.
