I have a number of commercial grade oak chemistry laboratory cabinets in my shop (came from a local high school chemistry lab, school was being “decommissioned”) and some of the cabinets have some large wide drawers. These are just regular drawers without any mechanical rolling slides. Though the drawers are usable, I find they are pretty hard to shut when they are loaded with heavy tools. Be sure to install some rolling slides when you hang the drawers. Then you won’t have to use your knee and foot to force them closed like I have to do.
