    Best material for replacing drawers bottom

    I need to replace the bottoms of my drawers as the current one is made of hardboard and has become bent over time.

    I am looking to replace them with something that is more sturdy and I am thinking of ply wood. Any recommendation?

    Just use a piece of metal to reinforce the bottom. amazon.co.uk/FIX…PQA

    Yes three ply boarding will give a good finish it can be found in a variety of thicknesses

    What I do is put screws under where it is bent, so it always remains straight

    Got to go with kester76

    It's no good replacing with similar board and the issue seems to be overfilling (too much weight) and to compensate a metal strip should be used - it will also strengthen the joints and prevent the board popping out
