I first bought the pencil drawer in 1971 as an accessory for my office drafting stations and they are still in place providing storage for pencils, pens and related office equipment. They are the perfect solution for small desk items whether in the office or at home.

Great Drawer!
The Drawer is great. Wide, Very accessible. Good pocket design. I love using it.

The only thing keep it from being a 5 Star is, as most commenters have noted, there is no template, or instructions. Even if there were some simple instructions, the installation would take just a few minutes.

Now I know in this day and age this drawer is designed using computer software. So spitting out a print on where to put the screw holes would be so easy. And Herman Miller is no slouch organization, so it is beyond me why a simple piece of paper is not included.

Yes, I would recommend it, and yes, I would buy it again.

Not happy too shallow
I had one of these from years ago. you all have changed the design. this is much shallower and doesn't hold some of the things that i normally keep in the pencil drawer. i'm disappointed.

Not what you expect from Herman Miller. Cheaply made, pain to install and then doesnt operate smoothly at all. Fit is sloppy, its almost like they made the edges way to small to hang on the slides. Is a cheap plastic mold that needs some improving.

Product worked perfectly
I've been using Herman Products for nearly 50 years and was once again pleased with the results. The product was used as a retro fit on an existing built-in desk. Installation was easy and the product worked perfectly and to top it off it was half the price of big box office supply store comparables.

Nice affordable tray drawer
Nice affordable tray drawer. Difficult to install without paper template for drilling holes...

Drawer glides need to be sold separately, in the service field the whole assemble doesn't need to be replaced.

The drawer was sturdy, easy to install, & was delivered quickly.

Great product
This would have been the perfect pencil drawer for my needs, except it was too 'deep' to fit into the space I wanted. (Under a bar in the kitchen area). No fault of the product, just a bit too big for this applpication. If there was a smaller version of this drawer, I'd buy it.

functions perfectly as add-on drawer to desktop.
Great function. I don't like the hollow plastic sound, but maybe with more stuff the hollow sound would be muted. Just picky.
