I’ve found these little cabinets useful for personal use and have made them for others. Machinist cabinet look. Simple 1/4” x 1/4” dados in the cabinet sides spaced for the depth of drawers desired. I’ve made them with dividers in the drawers and without. Straight forward = The drawer bottom doubles as the runners for the drawer in the cabinet. Simple rabbets on the drawer corners – with bottoms glued and tacked to the drawer frame. allow a 1/16” on each side for the drawer bottom with some candle wax and they slide easily without jamming. I’ve made them in various shapes and sizes – most often in red oak but also in utility pine for the garage, too. Great for small collectibles, thread cabinet, small tools, pocketknives, and other smalls to which you want convenient access.
