Any suggestions appreciated

I have a planchest with wooden sliding drawers and the top drawer of it is stuck close.

I managed to open it about the 15cm by two of us pulling it out with a lot of force but we didn’t manage to pull it out further.

The drawer is empty.

If I got it out all the way I can sand it down a bit which would solve the issue.

Thankful for any help!

  • Have you tried removing the drawer below it - depending on construction that may give you access to the drawer above. – Ecnerwal Aug 29 '20 at 14:05
  • Yes we tried that. I will try again next time to remove the drawers below and the push the drawer from the back ... – Planchest-drawer Aug 29 '20 at 20:45

Try a dehumidifier or air conditioner to reduce the humidity and shrink the wood.

If patient, wait for winter when that tends to happen naturally in heated buildings.
