I am trying to figure out a balance in building a drawer box 33x22x10 and whether to use 1/2 or 3/4 baltic birch. The weight of the wood is about 40lbs for the 3/4 and 25 lbs for the 1/2. Has anyone experimented with this? This is for a kitchen so it will be holding pretty heavy pots and pans. I know a lot of blogs have been written about this, but any real life experience using 1/2" or 3/4" drawers and how they held up would be helpful. Any ideas concerning adding support or anything else that comes to mind would be appreciated.
