Okay, I haven’t posted a French Fry Friday post in a while. This is where I talk about those small things or accessories that normally get overlooked in my project post.
This week I am taking a look at file drawers. There are several ways to accomplish this task. The most popular way is to use a rack system. Just make sure you leave enough room for it to slid in there.
Rockler has a slip on system, where is very cool and easy too. With it being plastic I bet the hanging file folder will slide great on it.
I prefer to keep it all natural. What I do use to cut a dado in the top edge of the drawer box and use the box itself as the rail system. I doesn’t take lone. I cut it right after I dado our for the bottom. Flip the board over readjust the height and fence. Cut the dado on the outside and I leave about 3/16”. The only draw back, as with the slip on, is the cabinet width is fixed. If you need a wider cabinet you may have to make the files lateral.
