This will allow you to start sorting according to the item rather than just creating a more organized mess within the drawers. Not they are empty, start with the drawer closest to the kitchen stove. In this one you will want to put the following items; oven mitts, hot plates, trivets and hot plates. Any other equipment that you regularly use for baking and holding hot utensils can go in here as well. The next drawer closest to the stove needs to contain all the cooking tools.

The Problem With Wooden Drawers Wooden drawers, over time can develop niggling little faults which we invariably put up with, inconvenient and annoying as they can be - when actually - the majority of these problems are relatively easy to fix. Drawers where the base has split and sticking drawers are probably the most common problems experienced. With just a little knowledge these can be rectified without having to start phoning around for a joiner as the first or our only option. Overloading drawers can often be the root cause of sticking drawers. The first step is to completely empty the drawer and remove for inspection. Check for loose or protruding pins or nails either on the drawer or in and around the drawer frame. Where evident; hammer back flush and refit drawer. It could be that simple. Tip. Before getting the toolkit out for sticking drawers; first try rubbing the runners and drawer grooves with candle wax. This might just do the job without any further effort. Drawer runners could also be the culprit. Check how smoothly the draw slides along the wooden runners. If they have worked loose it can be the cause of sticking; again, usually due to overloading. If so, then just apply fresh adhesive to the runner and pin back into place. Worn runners are another common cause of drawer problems. The uppermost sides can become worn with use and time. Check that the underside of the runner is still good - it might be possible to just remove the runner and turn it over. If so, then carefully prise it off with a wood chisel- apply adhesive- and re-pin into position. New runners may be required if turning the old runners round does not solve the problem of sticking. Where this is the case cut a couple of pieces of wood to the same dimensions as the original runners, smooth with a medium abrasive paper and drill with the smallest wood drill bit in your toolbox to take the small diameter of the fixing panel pins or nails. Apply a thin coat of wood adhesive to the back of the new runner- press into position- and affix with pins. Drawer bases can also suffer the adverse effects of overloading. In time they will begin to sag and eventually they can split completely, requiring replacement. In this case, cut a new base piece from either plywood or from a hardwood of choice. Next, remove the nails or pins securing the damaged base to the body of the drawer using pincers, and remove any glue blocks that may be attached using a mallet and wood chisel. Replace with new base by gluing and using pins. Drawer bases that are split may be sometimes repaired, that is to say; simply remove both halves from the drawer body and glue them back together. From a strength point of view, depending on usage, this may not be the best option.
