    Hi all,

    I'm trying to build a chest of drawers - nothing fancy just 4 drawers which get smaller as you move higher up the stack. Haven't got any specific height / width that I'm working to at the moment so any general guidance on sizing would help.

    What I'd like to know is how to calculate the individual draw sizes (height, width, depth) especially since I would like to use runners. The bit I'm a little confused about is what height to isntall the runners and in turn what height and width the draws should be. Is there some sort of formula to apply???

    Many thanks
