Akurum deep drawer file cabinet

Materials: deep kitchen drawer (any width)

Description: This really just involves adding another support arm to a deep kitchen drawer, that intern holds the ikea drawer dividers high enough to accomodate standard files. This works great considering the deep drawers have a 100 lb. weight limit. The soft closers can be (recommended) used as well. I used wood 2x2's and kerffed them to the original drawer back.

To do again I would probably paint the wood primer gray to mimic the drawer insides. A simple screw through the end of the second support arm holds it to the 2x2. New holes are required (same size as original) for the drawer front end of the support arm.
