Wood Products

  • 1 Project panel , ¾” thick
  • 1 Boards , 1x3x8ft

Hardware & Supplies

  • 2 Drawer pulls of your choice
  • 1 Paint or stain of choice
  • 4 Small casters
  • 1 LEGO baseplates (optional)

Cut List & Parts

  • 1 Drawer bottom , 24"x15 ¾” x¾” Project panel
  • 2 Drawer edge , 1x3x25 ½” boards
  • 2 Drawer edge , 1x3x15 ¾” boards


  • Cut Your Wood

    Make cuts according to cut list

  • Sand

    Sand everything smooth using a random orbit sander

  • Drill Pocket holes

    Using the Kreg Jig 520PRO, drill pocket holes as follows:

    1 pocket hole at each end of your 15 ¾” long 1x3 pieces.

    3 pocket holes along each side and along each end of your project panel.

  • Assemble

    Attach the 25 ½” long side pieces to the project panel using 1 ¼” pocket hole screws, situating it so your pocket holes will end up on the bottom of the tray and therefore not visible.

    Flip it over and attach the 15 ¾” long 1x3 pieces to the side pieces using one pocket hole screw on each end.

    Flip it over again and secure the 15 ¾” long end pieces to the bottom project panel piece using 1 ¼” pocket hole screws.

  • Drill Holes for Hardware

    Measure and mark your hardware placement centered on each of the longer sides of your tray. I find it easiest to use a strip of painter’s tape and stick it on the drawer pull, marking the holes, and then stick it onto the tray and use it as a template to drill through.

  • Paint or Stain

    Customize your tray with any color paint or stain you choose. For this one, I used a Provincial colored stain.

  • Add Casters and Hardware

    Attach small casters to the bottom at each corner. Install your drawer pulls into your pre-drilled holes on each side.

  • (Optional) Add LEGO Baseplates

    You can add LEGO base plates and either make them removable, or attach them to the tray using hot glue. You can use a utility knife to trim them to size by scoring them and then snapping them in half.
