Milk Street drawer boxes are thick, offering not only greater stability, but also less wear and tear on our drawer glide systems. If boxes remain square, your glides will function properly for the life of your dresser.
We have increased the thickness of the drawer walls to 15mm, allowing for maximum storage capacity. We utilize extra deep cuts on our English dovetail joinery. The type of joint constructed for dovetail drawers is known as a "locking joint." The dovetail "locking joint" is constructed from wedge-shaped channels cut into the wood, that interlock with one another from either side of the drawer, creating a box. The wedge-shaped pieces are called "tails" and "pins," and provide a strong joint that is quite resistant to force once the two sides are assembled. The advantages of dovetail drawers are in the construction of their joints. They offer a stronger drawer, with a larger holding capacity. Dove tailing also reduces wood consumption and offers sturdy, precise drawer boxes that can hold up to 100 pounds without compromising the integrity of your dresser's function. Stuff those drawers!
At Milk Street Baby, all dressers and nightstands come equipped with top drawer, battery-operated, LED drawer lights. These lights offer convenience when it's time to change baby, and allow you to put clothing away without turning on a light. You know what they say: "Never wake a sleeping baby." Now you can get things done while baby sleeps. These lights are each powered by three AAA batteries which can easily be changed. Motion detecting sensors turn lights on when drawer opens and turns them off 30 seconds after the drawer is closed. These white LEDs are UV which offers an added benefit of sterilization, killing microbes and bacteria. Click here to read more: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/04/200414173251.htm
