I built a hanging wall shelf similar to Paul’s, but with a drawer on the bottom for my wife’s stored knick knacks. The drawer’s outer dimensions are less than 1/8 smaller than the inner walls of the drawer housing, and as long as I slide it straight, no problems. But if I push it from a side (rack it?), it binds. The drawer is only 5 1/2″ deep (front to back), which I think exacerbates the racking. It’s in pine, so I’m thinking the softness of the wood might also be a contributor. I tried rounding the back and bottom edges and corners of the drawer. What else can I do to try to alleviate this?
