Four Drawer File Cabinet

This is a file cabinet I built to compliment the pedestal desk. Also built in Quartersawn White Oak, the design is similar. The design also takes elements of a version featured in Woodsmith Magazine.
The piece measures 58" tall by 22" deep. The drawers are on full extension Accuride slides. The finish is garnet shellac applied with a brush.
This quartering view shows the frame and panel construction. Mortise and tenon joinery is used throughout the carcase. Still some work to do on the finish when these photos were taken.
Here you can see the drawer construction. The drawers are dovetailed front and back. The drawers use hanging file folders and the hanging rails are made in my shop. The rail design is very simple and extremely functional.
Here you can see a bit more detail in the drawer construction...
...and here is a close up of the hanging rail detail. The drawer fronts and backs are run over the tablesaw to create a kerf. I used a thin kerf blade which is 3/32" wide and accepts perfectly steel flat bars from the home center. The steel bars are slit about 1/4" from the top edge as the photo shows and bent slightly to prevent them from sliding out of the slot.
