If a drawer is barely hitting the plumbing, you may need to cut only a small notch in the drawer back to accommodate things. If there's a lot of plumbing interference in the center of the drawer but none along the sides, consider cutting out the middle of the drawer and building new drawer sides along each edge of the cutout. That will still give you drawer space for smaller items, and when the drawer's closed, you won't see the difference.

In some cases, you won't be able to use the drawer at all. As you did with the top, examine the drawer's construction, and then carefully separate the drawer box from the drawer front. Then, using glue or wooden blocks installed from inside the chest, simply reinstall just the drawer front back into its original position.
