This project was inspired by this one posted recently, which was built from a plan in Shop Notes #74.
I really did not use the Shop Notes plan at all, other than for inspiration. :-) I thought commercial drawer guides would be more practical for drawers which were going to be loaded with relatively heavy hardware. And, while the purist in me leaned towards making my own drawer divider system, I concluded that plastic trays would take up less space and allow just as much versatility.
The drawers are simple plywood boxes with tempered masonite bottoms, and the finish is just some amber shellac I had laying around. This was fun to make, and filling it up has had a domino effect of getting me to straighten up my shop in general.
