My Father in Law just finished building custom cabinets for his house, with all drawers on the bottom instead of doors…most of the drawers are big, 36” x 24” Deep x 10 inches tall. I asked him about this very thing, he said he simply substituted 1/2 Ply for the bottoms instead of 1/4” for smaller Silver-ware type drawers. Those drawers are very stout, full of heavy dishes and doing fine.

-- I'm strictly hand-tool only...unless the power tool is faster and easier!
