Need little help design a drawer for my closet

I need help to design a drawer that is 56"H x 23"L x 1/4" thick but it is hollow with rounded corners. I want the final drawers made from plastic. Please, can anyone help?

Can you double-check your dimensions first? Or at least make sure you have the height and length correct? And is the 1/4" the thickness of the drawer’s sides, front, and back? Best of all, can you provide an image of what you have in mind? The more information you provide, the easier it will be to try to help.

This doesn’t sound too difficult, but as @davidheim1 requested, please provide more clarity to help us help you. Please take this message as a plea for info, not as an attack!

The outside of a drawer is typically a rectangular solid, but the dimensions you provided don’t make sense for such. 56" high for a single drawer? Really! Or is that the total height of a chest with multiple drawers in it? If so, what height per drawer? And what depth front to back? 1/4" thick sounds like the thickness of the parts of the drawer (front, sides, back, bottom). That seems awfully thin for a drawer that size, especially made of something other than metal.

I don’t understand what you mean by “hollow with rounded corners”. Could you elaborate?

HI,

THE DRAWERS ARE VERTICAL: 56"H x 23" x 5"D ; 1/4" thickness made from plastic and its hollow.
The corners are rounded too…can you help?

Thank you for the dimensions, but they still don’t make sense to me. Take a look at the attached image. The rectangle on the left shows the dimensions you provided: 56" high, 23" wide, 5" deep. As far as I can tell, that would not make for a functional drawer. The rectangle on the right may make more sense. Here, the drawer is 56" wide, 23" deep, and 5" high. Which one shows what you want?
Obviously, the drawer will be hollow. Are all the corners rounded? If you have a photo or some other image that shows what you want, please attach it. The more information you provide, the easier it will be to provide help.

So this is what I understand you are describing. It is 56"H x 26"W x 5"D and the wall thickness is 1/4". And the corners are rounded.

Hi Dave R,

That looks awesome, the hollow is at the height of 56". The drawer sliding
vertically in the closet … I have crude hand drawing of the closet and
basic sketchup drawing too. Again thank you for your help.

Kindly Regards,

Your descriptions and your pencil sketch aren’t making this any clearer.

This?

Hi Dave R,

The hand sketch: One is the FRONT VIEW and SIDE VIEW

It doesn’t communicate what you want the drawer to look like. Make a sketch of the drawer itself since that’s what you’re asking for help with. Or just draw it yourself. A cross section and a rectangle with rounded corners as a path for Follow Me is how I did my previous attempts.

Hi Dave R,

Do you have any video to create arc? Sorry, this is my first-week using
SketchUp.

Look at the Help Center for information on using the arc tools.

How do you get anything in and out of the drawer? It can’t be 56" high and open at the top, surely, which is the normal meaning of ‘drawer’ - a roughly rectangular box open at the top, sliding in a carcase.

It looks (maybe) as if you want one side open - perhaps to hang things in from somewhere at the top?

I drew a rectangle, rounded the corners with the Arc tool.

Then drew a profile of the cross section, 1/4" thick, and used FollowMe.

Pretty much the same method and same result as DaveR, who as usual gets there first!

But as others have commented, it isn’t quite clear what your design intent is.
