Tall Bottom Drawer

To make the two bottom drawers stay together, I used an L-Shaped Corner Bracket from Amazon. It needs to attach to both drawer fronts. Here is a picture. Notice that the top drawer does not contain the bottom board in its slot. This is so that you have two fronts attached to a bottom drawer that has its bass in its slot. This makes the bottom drawer a total of 7″ tall. Great for tall spools of thread!
