I made another drawer using what ever I could find in the shop. Half inch and 3/4 inch plywwod with 1/2 inch wheels. This is working out nicely. This drawer is being used to store various nails that I hardly ever use. More clutter out of the way.

I have room to build two more drawers – one wide one and another like this one.

More pictures and details are included in my blog.

And now for an update. I made two more drawers to fit under the tool box. So I am finally through making wheeled drawers.

These last two drawers were built with various types of wood including some reclaimed pallet boards for the bottom of the wide drawer. Plywood from a drawer made in 1987 was cut down to make two sides.

Some good things came out of these projects. Free wood and fewer cutoffs in the “short” bin.
