Nothing fancy, just a couple filing cabinets I built to hold a ton of LEGO manuals and to match the existing cabinets I had also built. Carcass is 3/4” Birch ply and the drawer fronts are 3/4” Poplar. Drawers themselves are made of 1/2” unpainted Maple ply. Backs, door panels, and drawer bottoms are 1/4” ply. Some pre-primed trim from Home Depot and some full extension drawer slides and painted handles and there you have it.
Like the cabinets these are built with pocket hole screws and no glue (except for the trim around the top). Came in quite handy since after these pictures I actually took the drawers apart and cut the sides down by another 1/4”. The file cabinets were made to match the height of the main cabinets and as-built the folder tabs were scraping the tops when opening and closing. If they weren’t built to match I’d have made them about 3-4” taller.
I really like the runners for the hanging folders. You can cut them to length and they just slip-over the edges and work great. Probably the cheapest way to build one of these. If you’re curious these are the runners and drawer slides I used:
