Both of the cleats that get fastened to the drawer side, I rounded the corners a little bit. I didn't want them sharp, so a little sanding was in order.

After drilling all of my holes last night for the drawer sides, I decided to wait until today to fasten them together.

After posting last night, I went to bed, and I thought to myself --- "You didn't just do what I think I did, did you"?

After a little thought, I realized I did do something, not the smartest thing I have ever done.

Results below.

These are the ends that get screwed in the drawer. It dawned on me that I had indeed drilled holes in the top of the drawer ends, where no screws will be installed.

Duh! Lol.

The redeeming factor is that the one in the front end of the drawer will be covered by a finish plate. The one in the rear will only ever be seen if the drawer is completely removed.

As a result, I am not going to do anything about these extra holes.

Drawer is now installed, with the 2 French Cleats holding the whole thing in place, and slides nicely in and out, just like it should.

I then pulled the drawer out most of the way, and am satisfied with the stability of the drawer.

With the drawer pulled out and only about 4" still holding the drawer in place, it's still pretty stable. I would not want to load this with 50 lbs of "stuff", like canned goods or something, but for somewhat lighter items, it should be fine.

Hey, if it falls off, I'll just have to fix/replace it.

Finally getting some storage in the rear. This will leave room for the washer below, so I am happy with this so far.

You pulled that drawer so far out it caused me to prop the front of my computer up. I thought the drawer was going to fall out. [emoticon]

Another 6 inches or so of powdered sunshine in the last 24 hours.

The commute of 20 feet from the garage to the motor home door yesterday, in the snow, was just just too great. I couldn't do it! Lol...

Probably could blame it on a lot of things, and most of them would be wrong. Lol.
