This may be a little odd for a project but … always bugged me that production cabinet company made little effort to put drawers under sinks. Many times you end up with no drawers on a smalll cabinets. But (as in mine) there is room with a little custom work. For these the drawer rails had room to go by the sink and attach to the back panel of the cabinet. The drawers are shorten and cut to miss the sink when closed.

Not only do you now have under-sink drawers, but also you can now see what’s in ALL of the drawer.

Nice work!

Very practical and useful project. You have made use of dead space and added some much needed storage to the kitchen.

Good job.

That is a great idea. You pulled out some usable space that is wasted in probably 90% of all under sink cabinets.

That’s one way to get more space!

And I thought I was to first to think of this. Just goes to show you Woodworkers are inventers too! The industry should take note. We need draws in the bathroom!
Nice work CharlieD!
