Drawer Width Limits

    Hello All,

    I'll be fitting out 4 wardrobes in my family's new house later this year.  I'm keen to show off some craftsmanship, and would love to include in each one a drawer bank using similar construction techniques as in the current Tool Cabinet series.

    My question; is there a max width to this style of construction?  I.e. if it's a wide drawer, would racking be a problem without a mechanical slide?  (If so, I'll just make them narrower!)

    Ideally I'd like them to be a little wider than 2 feet.

    Thoughts appreciated.

    Hi Scott, wider than deep is a challenge but not impossible.  You will need to keep the tolerances high and fit the drawer bottom so it makes the drawer solid as a rock.
