I’ve been wanting to build a file cabinet for some time. Since my wife does most of the paper work (filing etc.) I could at least help her out. The project consisted of a combination of red and white oak while poplar was selected for the inner drawers. Self closing drawer slides were utilized along with file hangers from Office Depot.
The size of the cabinet is 30 inches high by 20 inches deep by 16 1/2 inches wide. This was the preferred size to provide accommodation for the drawers ( 13 3/4”W x 8 3/4”H x 18 1/2”L). I also made the drawer pulls utilizing a router and table saw. A medium color oil stain was applied to the oak along with rub-on polyurethane.
It didn’t take long for my wife to fill up the drawers with files and paperwork.
Thanks for viewing,
