Foyer chest – Begin a sliding chest project by choosing slider because the type of selected slide determines the dimensions of the chest box. Once you have selected slide and measured cabinet opening, you can determine the tray box’s goal, buy a suitable chest box, mount slide and install the chest. Measure the width and height of your chest opening. If you are building a flush-mount tray, these measurements determine the width and height of the face of the tray. A flush-mount chest slides into the cabinet case and flush with the cabinet face. If you are building an overlay tray, the width and height of the chest face will be slightly larger than the chest opening-about 1/4 inch on each of the four edges. The front of an overlay chest contains the front and front of the cabinet case.
Measure the distance from one side of the case opening to the other. Side-mount slides take up from 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch on each side of the chest box. Read the manufacturer’s instructions to find out how much space your page-mount slide requires. Draws the distance from side to side distance of the saw opening. This is the desired width in your foyer chest box. Measure from the front of the cabinet opening on the inside back of the cabinet case. Subtract an inch or more from this measurement, which is the required depth of the chest box. If you are building a flush-mount chest, also the thickness of the chest draws the face. A side-mount slide should be an inch or shorter than the tray box. Slides are available in 2-inch increments. For the correct length of under mount slides, read the manufacturer’s instructions.
Foyer chest design ideas, install the tray sliding using the screw sizes recommended or supplied by the manufacturer and in accordance with the detailed instructions the slide manufacturers provide. Turn the chest face on your chest box from the inside of the chest box, be particularly careful if there is a flush-mount chest front to leave a minimum 1 / inch between each of the four sides of the chest front and the cabinet opening.
