I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but it is to me! Thank you GWers for letting me know about Lee Valley drawer insert hardware!

fouramblues - that looks fantastic! I have never used a circular saw or a chainsaw and hope never to... (no hand eye coordination here). That said, I am pretty good at splitting wood with an ax :)

Looks good. Did you have to buy a full sheet of 1/4 wood?

Thanks! :) Before today, the most powerful power tool I'd used was my stick blender. Or maybe my Kitchenaid mixer. DH is so handy I'd never had any cause to use power tools, but I'm trying to pull my weight here. So I sawed a few sticks of wood. You should see what he did today!!! (Pantry shelving system, still unfinished, but I'll post pics when he's done.)

marti8a, I really lucked out. I was looking for "project boards" (described long ago on GW by bob_cville) at Home Depot. The nice guy in the lumber section of the store had never seen what I described, but happened to have a scrap of 1/4" plywood. He ripped it into 17 2.5"x30" strips for me and charged me $0!! So my circular saw skills are thus far limited to 2.5" cuts. :)

I used a circular saw for the first time today...

... but hopefully not the last, right?

Hee-hee, Angie. All my limbs are still intact, so I'm game for another go. :) I did 4 drawers in all over the weekend. But here's what DH did:

Pretty cool, huh? It's killing me that I can't put anything in there until the paint's fully cured...
