SHOP DRAWER PULLS


I'm about to make some drawers for my shop, to take the place of the open shelves. Get to store more items in the same space, and easier to fine. Collect less dust too.
These'll be quick and dirty drawers, not fancy. Some 1/4" plywood for the bottoms, then 1/2" plywood, 2-3 " wide, on edge, to make the drawer. Glued, no nails. I'll leave a bit of a lip on each side, that will sit on spacers, to hold the drawers up, and to slide on.
I was going to stop at the Local Ace to pick up some drawer pulls. Then I realized I didn't need to. Holesaw, cut some plywood plugs, two sizes, glue the smaller plug to the drawer front, glue the larger plug to the smaller. Viola, drawer pull. No prob.
If I'd wanted a handle, instead of a pull, I'd glue a couple of spacers on, then a narrow strip of plywood joining the two. Viola, drawer handle. No prob.

If you want to get fancy then you could roundovah the edges.
For less fancy drill two holes in the fronts and tie a loop of rope through them.
