Birch Plywood Drop Box Slider Kit

Our Price:  £6.50Earn 6 Loyalty Points

Code:  BPSDBOX01-M

Birch plywood drop box kit with top slider is ready to assemble and decorate (if required).  All parts come ready sanded for your convenience and all you need is a good quality wood glue for assembly.  Supplied with a perspex window, additional MDF slider (see instructions) and is available in 2 sizes.

Drop boxes are extremely versatile - ideal for weddings, birthdays and special occasions for friends and family to drop in a card or note, fill with memorabilia or collectibles and much more!  

As this is a flat pack kit, all decoration can be done before assembly (see instructions) which makes the job SO much easier.  Birch plywood can be left plain and simply varnished or waxed to resist finger marks.  You can also stain or colour wash the wood so that the grain still shows through, or completely paint the box to suit the occasion or theme.  If you do this, we recommend you use the MDF slider provided as this is thinner than the birch ply and once painted will be easier to use.

For best results we recommend acrylic paint. For a completely unique finished piece try decoupage, cover with pretty papers or even fabric.

Laser cut from 3mm birch plywood, our drop box kits are available in the following sizes:

  • Medium - external measurement approx. 8" x 7 3/4"" x 2" deep - 203mm x 197mm x 54mm deep
  • Large - external measurement approx. 11 1/2" x 11 3/4" x 2" deep - 292mm x 298mm x 54mm deep

Extra perspex sheets are available (additional charge applies) which makes it easy to create floating frames. Please order the total number of sheets you require (i.e if you order 2 boxes and want an extra sheet for each, make sure you order 2 sheets).  Perspex sheets come with a protective layer of film on each side - peel this off before use.

Calico Craft Parts products are proudly manufactured in our own UK workshop. We don't use fancy packaging or branding, you just pay for the product and we hope you'll enjoy using them.  Here's more about what we use with some hints and tips:

MDF wood (2mm) shapes and embellishments need little or no further enhancement if you like the vintage look. Use inks and crackle glazes to enhance this further without altering the base colour. They are also ideal for gilding, staining and painting. Larger pieces can also be stamped, collaged, crackled and more - see how it's done over at the Design Team Blog!

Birch plywood (3mm) has a naturally light coloured birch wood top and bottom layer which is suitable for staining, painting, waxing or burning with a pyrography tool. All birch plywood plaques come ready sanded for your convenience - plaques over 100mm are also fine sanded.  Depending on availability, we may from time to time (but rarely) need to substitute with light birch plywood or poplar plywood - this does not significantly affect the appearance of the product and has no effect on its end use.

PLEASE NOTE:  Laser cutting may leave some sooty residue on the back of MDF pieces although we take steps to minimise this as much as possible - it can be more pronounced the more fiddly the design. This is not a defect and will not affect the end use of the product as it's on the back. As our products are freshly cut to order, you may also notice a slight burnt aroma (caused by the heat of the laser cutting process) which will fade once your order has been unpacked and the pieces have aired for a bit. You can also seal them with a clear sealer, such as Mod Podge, before use if needed.

WE RECOMMEND: Use a good quality wood or PVA glue when using our products for best results - apply a thin coating across the back of the piece, allow to dry for a few minutes, then stick down pressing firmly and evenly.  We highly recommend DecoArt paints, mediums, glues and finishes for tried and tested results with our products.
