Sagging Drawers

So my drawers were sagging, bottom hanging out and all. I could pull them back up, but as soon as I put anything in them - down they'd go.

Turns out the little staples they used in making them just didn't work. So I added a few L-brackets, and they did the trick!


What did you think I was talking about?

Good pun by yourself.

Our shelves are kinda sagging. Well be reinforcing them. The angle brackets are a cool idea.

Thanks.

It helped that the drawers are made out of plywood, so it was just a matter of using short enough screws to avoid popping through. The edges being supported by the routed slot on three sides means just the back needed additional support.

I also had to substitute new screws for the side attachment to the draw mechanism, and using Philips head screws instead of the oem square heads meant fewer tools to bring along.
