I've never installed under mount drawer slides. I'm building a "rustic" g
un cabinet (for the camp) with (salvaged) hand hewn boards, so none of the
faces are straight. I did plane the edges, for making glued up panels.
I need to know what kind of inner cabinet (carcass) framing support, I need
, for installing under mount drawer slides. I think I can make a reasonab
ly standard drawer, with these uneven boards, but I'm not sure how the slid
es would be mounted/supported, on the interior of the carcass.
Does anyone have a pic of the interior support "system" of a cabinet for un
dermount slides? .... so I can get some idea of an appropriate support syst
I haven't found a pic, online, of the interior of a carcass, but I may not
know what I am suppose to be, specifically, looking for.... in other words,
I'm confused with online pics.
Do you need pics of my cabinet, before recommending/suggesting anything, to
know what I'm trying to describe? The cabinet is not assembled, yet, but
I think I can do a reasonable dry fit, for you get a better idea of what I
'm working with..... what I might best need to construct. Does this make
I should be ready to assemble the carcass in a few days, and I need to cons
truct this support/inner-framing, as/before I complete the carcass assembly
I haven't shopped for slides, yet, and I suppose I need to decide what slid
es to use, before considering/building their support system. The lower cab
inet will have a large/long bottom drawer (I assume 3 slides for a 45"W X 5
"H X 20"D) and above this drawer will be two smaller drawers (two slides ea
ch, 20"W X 5"H X 20"D). The smaller drawers might require a load of 6-8 bo
xes of shotgun shells (30 lbs?) each, and the larger drawer might require a
load of 100lbs(?, probably an over estimation).
More so than normal load, I suspect the drawers and slides would suffer mor
e from the rough (often time, inconsiderate) handling/usage, by my nephews,
the older kids, guests, and other drunk fools that, sometimes, come around
, so whatever slide support, I need, may need to be beefier than normal.
