Project Process in steps
Have ten birch plywood sheets for the drawer and box cut to the correct size. A handy Glue Gun is used to stick the parts together to make a drawer open at the top and a fitting box that is open at the front.
As soon as the boxes are dry, sand the edges cleanly and carefully.
Now it is the drawer’s turn. Use a ruler to mark two spots in the middle, 10 cm apart. That is where the cord pull handle will be fitted.
To make the drawer handle, knot both ends of a piece of rope about 25 cm long. Then screw each knot to one of the marked spots, ideally so that the ends of the screws peek out on the other side of the plywood.
Cut off the protruding screw ends on the inside of the drawer.
Nearly done now: just paint the outer box in your own design, for example with environmentally friendly acrylic paint, and your dog can start playing with this enticing box.
