Trays

Sideboards and wardrobes (244:1, 2) often include interior trays for storage. These can have shaped fronts in which the contents are visible, or flat fronts, which are suitable for cutlery, etc. Construction can be lap dovetails (244:3), through dovetails (244:4) or box lock joint (244:5), and in all cases the plywood bottoms are grooved in as shown in 244:5. The trays can run on the usual type of drawer rail (244:3A), side hung on guides screwed to the carcass sides (244 :4B), or sliding on screwed guides under the trays (244:4C); the latter is useful for trays which have neither shaped fronts nor handle grips as sufficient space is left between each tray for finger-grip. In all cases the trays are a fairly slack fit and slide easily. Where the carcass doors are inset, as in 244:6, and hung on standard butts, a false side (E) must be fitted which allows the tray to clear the door as it is withdrawn. Figure 244:5 can also be used as a filing-tray for office purposes, and sizes range from 21/2 in (63 mm) to 3 in (76 mm) deep by 14 in (355 mm) to 15 in (381 mm) long and 1O1/2 in (266 mm) to 12 in (304 mm) wide, with the back, sides and front of equal thickness and about 5/16 in (8 mm) or 3/8 in (9.5 mm) thick. The plywood bottoms need only be about 1/8 in (3 mm) thick.
