Welcome to dickblick
These versatile flat files are made from natural birch plywood and are ready for finishing or painting. Drawer sides are made from solid wood, and the drawer bottoms are tempered, smooth hardboard. Drawers are 2" deep, and each drawer has two brushed aluminum handles.
Birch veneer is prized as a furniture wood for its durability, its resistance to abrasion, its ability to take a stain. Create a unique and personalized piece of furniture to organize your studio.
Each stackable cabinet is open at the top and has five drawers. Combine two or more drawer units, and build the storage you need. Add a bookshelf for additional storage space. Matching caps and bases are sold separately.
Available in four standard sizes:
Casters are installed on triangular wooden mounting blocks that you add to the four corners of your cabinet — no base needed. Each Caster Kit includes two standard and two locking swivel casters. Casters are 4¾" high and available in three finishes to match your flat file. Assembly required.

Comments about SMI Unfinished Natural Birch Stackable Files:
Very well constructed. Excellent materials had been used. Due to the quality of the materials the finished product is quite heavy. I purchased the five drawer option and very pleased.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good choice for flat files
from Rock Hill, SC
I have three sets of these flat files in three sizes. They are well built, attractive (depending on how you finish them), the drawers slide easily even when full and they last forever. These shelves do exactly what they are designed to do and they look good doing it. I prefer the look of wood over metal. The price is reasonable for the quality of the product.The cap and base are overpriced in my view so I order the cabinet only and then make my own cap and base. It isn't hard. The only other drawback is that you have to wait for them; it takes several weeks for delivery. Don't expect the delivery guy to help get them out of the box...he won't, so have help standing by. Do NOT pay the extra for the extra shipping options; it is not worth the money.I have bought three of these files so I highly recommend them.
Using a 3-drawer file as a coffee table
I had seen a 3-drawer flat file with casters and a glass top being used as a coffee table in Blick's Winter 2003 catalog, but hadn't had the opportunity (or the money) to do it until now.I just finished putting it all together, and it's going to work! It looks great in my living room, in front of a clean-lined Ikea leather couch. Now I just have to finish the birch in a darker cherry finish to match my end tables and get a glass top, and I'm done.I did get the casters from an online company that specializes in them; the casters Blick sells are much too small.
