Where to put file drawer in 30-inch cabinet?
I am building a 3-drawer-stack 30" wide cabinet in the new office area. One of the drawers (deepest one) in this cabinet will be a file drawer.
Logic tells me the file drawer should be the lowest drawer of the stack. My aging back, knees, and eyes tell me that the file drawer should be at the top of the stack or at least in the middle, for better and easier access to daily use of files. (If it's not easy to use, my own experience tells me I won't use it, at least not effectively.)
The three drawers are 6", 11.5", and 12.5" tall. The big drawer is rated to hold ~100 lbs. The cabinet will be bolted to the wall studs, with a wood counter on top.
Where should I put the file drawer? Top, middle, or bottom?
