Drawer issue

Page 1 of 2  
Hi,
I made 2 pine drawer for my kids bedroom, each one has 3 doors. When I tried to install the slide for the doors, I realize that I do not have space between doors and side of drawer to install the slides. Is there any solution for this problem?
Thanks in advance, Faram

You could try a bottom mounted slide but perhaps if you described the drawer and drawer cavity, we could offer better advice.
For instance, is the bottom of the drawer recessed ? How much?
Is this a chest of drawers, under bed drawer box, how is it built ?

If the drawer slides are to be side-mounted onto the gables, you can buy stand-offs to do that job, creating enough offset to clear most doors. A cleat/block of wood will also work.

Gables? This word, I do not think it means what you think it means.

The 'side panels' of a cabinet are referred to as 'gables' around these parts.... by the pros...<G>

The pros in this part, of which I am one, don't. Using gables to refer to a cabinet side obviously came from a noob who thought that a gable wall just referred to a side wall, which is where gables are typically located on a house. Look up the word - you'll see what I mean. It has to do with the triangular shape. So, unless your cabinet sides are peaked, you are using an incorrect term - be ye pro or not.

Clarke said "Frankly, my dear! I don't give a damn!"
Gable usage in house design ***usually** means a triangular piece at the ends of a sloped roof.
Many refer to the "gable" in cabinets, also. Only incorrect until the masses use it in that context. Then it become correct, unfortunately.

Show me one instance where gable refers to anything else on a house, Sparky.

It is not now, nor will it ever be correct. Side is the only word that is necessary for the _side_ of a cabinet. The word gable provides additional information that the word side does not, and that information is not applicable, nor correct, for a cabinet side.
IFF the cabinet has a gable side, then, by all means, call it a gable.

Exactly what I expected. A bunch of Canuckistanians that are bastardizing the Queen's English, no doubt to get back at the old filly. While we're proffering Google searches, DAGS 'gable cabinet england' and explain the lack of cabinetry. You're outgunned, two fading empires to one.
I know you're not a noob, and you choose your words carefully - except when you disagree with me and then you're just simply full of poop - but using gable to denote a _side_ is wrong. Why have another word? Why have the wrong word? Does it change the meaning in any way, shape or form to say gable instead of side? Does side leave out something that gable includes for a cabinet? Nope. Some hoser, back in the deep dark past of Canada, jacked some terminology, and you guys being such pacifists, never called him on it.
Let's flip this around. You tell me - what exactly would you lose if you called the side of a cabinet a side? Do the BC dinner jacket wearing job site jockeys call a gable wall a side? Is there some simmering feud between carpenters and joiners that has you guys fighting over the same words? Not enough to go around?
People have enough difficulty communicating clearly when they use all the same words to refer to all the same things. Obfuscating words do not help.

It's a gable. Now the jury is back in and it has been determined that those who call those panels 'sides', or 'bulkheads' are not 'really' professional cabinet makers.

Okay...so you can't tell me what improvement there is in using a different word for the same thing. Okay, I'm going to start calling cars, grables. That should simplify my conversations.

That guy's address: Dave Lers 2720 Ontario St. Bellingham, WA 98226
WA is barely in the US, and it's way too close to Canada. There's even _Ontario_ in his address. He's a hoser, for sure.

From that site: "In the last few years I've taught part of the Furniture Technician course at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario"
I'm not arguing that you may have a _colloquialism_ on your side of the border. It's clear you do. I'm just saying that it doesn't make sense. Not from the original (and still champion) meaning of the word gable, and not by any measure of improving language clarity. In fact, from that same second link, I found this: "The construction system is based on columns of 5mm diameter holes drilled 32mm apart in the cabinet sides (gables)" Even he of the terminal X Proul, has to translate and he gives sides first billing!
You're making my case for me. As far as bulkheads, let's ask Lew what a bulkhead is - deal? ;)

Just what I needed to help clear things up: "Gables: If the side of the cabinet is not exposed, door is the only visible area of the cabinet. Otherwise, if the side is exposed, in this case the color of the carcass is visible and this can interfere with the rest of the cabinets. You would need replacement gables if this happens. Sides should be the same color, as the cabinet door, side of the cabinets and the front. Everything should match. Otherwise, you would need a different type of replacement gable for each type of exposed ends."

I stopped running for office in the 9th grade. I got 50% of the vote, and the other two guys split the other 50%. They said I needed a majority. So they ran the election again, and I got 50% again. The third time there were more votes than students. The fourth time they ran the election I was pissed and basically told everyone to FOAD. I'm not much of a politician.
