I would like to find some sort of jewelry, tool, or other small drawer chest just for holding cards and coins. It only needs two drawers.

Both drawers need to be sufficiently deep (meaning their interiors’ vertical top-to-bottom) to store lots of both decks and packets (in their thin little “wallets”) standing upright, so at least 4.5” deep. Coin tricks I typically store in egg cartons (lids removed), so an easy fit within that 4.5” depth requirement.

To be adequate for the size of my modest collection, these drawers’ horizontal interior dimensions would need to be at least 20” wide, and 12” front-to-back. (Egg cartons are nearly a foot long.)

The unit should be made of wood, or a similarly “classy” (suitable for living room) material, as opposed to a plastic item better suited for garage or basement. (But if necessary, that may be flexible.)

Seems simple enough, yet hard to find. Has anyone located a source for something like this? (Do I need to seek out a custom cabinetmaker, for so modest an item?)

While not exactly the specs you are seeking, have a look at a machinists tool chest. For example https://gerstnerusa.com/products/

I use one that I bought secondhand (eBay, Facebook marketplace are good options for finding a used one) and it holds a good number of decks and coins.

Some of those cost far more than the total value of my entire magic collection...!

Some times you can find drawer cabinets in craft stores like Michaels. Also, if you have a "container store" in your area, they have lots of choice for storage.

I was just in the local "Dollar Store", they have a nice large drawer cabinet in the storage items area of the store.
