Staggered cut, multi stack cabinet design.

In line cut, multi stack cabinet design.

Notice extra space between drawers for holding parts taller than drawer.

Building a custom cabinet for your drawers is an easy task. A radial arm saw or table saw with a 5/32 wide carbide tipped blade works best. Start by cutting all pieces to length per your custom design. Next cut the slots used for the drawer slides being careful not to cut more than half way through the board. Assemble the top and bottom to the sides then cut and install a piece of hardboard for

the back. That's all there is to it! Finish the project by inserting drawers into the cabinet and installing in the desired location.

Cabinets can be made from all types of wood. Pine, redwood, oak, even plywood or particle board cut to size. Wood that is straight and flat works best for cutting uniform slots for drawer slides.
