These are the bottom set of drawers I made for the rolling black wire shelves in my shop that go with the first set of museum-style drawers that sit on the second-to-bottom shelf. I wanted these to be larger for bigger tools and stuff but wanted them to still look thin and like museum drawers like the first set, so I made a simple shallow dado/groove in the middle of them to make them look like 2 smaller drawers (kinda faux). Still stuck to cheap 5/8” plywood from Home Depot – the B/C oak stuff – for the carcass but these drawers were out of 1/2” instead of 3/8” since they would hold bigger/heavier stuff. Finished them the same way as the first set with same hardware, so see the details on the other set for finishing and hardware. One more set left…phew! Those will go on the top to hold all my screws and sundry small parts and will look more “card catalog” style and will have pull-out boxes inside the drawers for the screws and stuff.
