Remove the two drawers and turn the cabinet upside down so that the undersides of the 'roof panels' of the drawer pockets will be facing up. In the middle, about 1/4" from the front edge, carve a tapered notch in each of these undersides. The notch should start about 1/8" deep near the front edge, and then taper to zero-depth towards the back. Take a ...
