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 2×2′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 2×2. New holes are required (same size as original) for the drawer front end of the support arm.
