New cutlery drawer for Scamp 13

I'm not crazy about OSB for cabinet making or using non roller drawer slides. When my wife said the cutlery tray she wanted to use wouldn't fit the original drawer its' fate was sealed.

I made a new drawer using 1/2" plywood instead of the thicker heavier OSB. It took a while to figure out how to suspend it from the stove tray like the original but it worked out well. Basically trim 3/16" per side from the overhead OSB board and mount the roller slides to the drawer top edges.

Works really well, opens fully and the tray fits

Good job Ron! Thanks for sharing the pics. There's something seriously needed for silverware and I think you've found the solution

Good Idea Ron and you did a great job! I don't understand why the manufacturer doesn't do this in the first place as this seems to be a constant design problem in a lot of campers. Thumbs up!

Diane, perhaps they are using left over OSB from the floors?

Nice job Ron. Thanks for sharing. Raz
