Re: Turn A Drawer Into A Step

Barry Irby
I tend to agree with Jason.

Trying to convert a drawer into a step looks like a neck breaker to me. To many failure points. Drawer slides out from under you, bottom fails in drawer, rip the sides out of the cabinet, and you get the picture.

Someone posted a picture of the Ikea stool above. Oddly, I watch a guy called Peter Millard on Youtube and the other day he built such a stool, copying it from Ikea.

I would consider installing a stool into the kick space. If you could cut it open you could put a folding stool under the bottom of the cabinet. OTOH I have reached the age that if I drop something I think about whether I need enough to warrant bending down to get it or just kick it out of the way and leave it.
