Hardware: choosing metal drawer slides

When it comes to building drawers
for a shop cabinet, or any drawer
that will be carrying a lot of weight,
I incorporate metal drawer slides
into the design. Their solid construction
guarantees a smooth rolling
drawer regardless of changes in
temperature or humidity.
Metal slides can reliably handle
loads up to 100 lbs. without binding
or sticking. And they’re available
in several different designs, with
options for partial or full extension
(and even beyond). Metal slides are
also pretty easy to install and even
allow you a little “wiggle room” to
adjust for a perfect fit.
Slide Selection. With so many
different styles on the market,
however, you’ll need to determine
which style is best suited for your
project before you begin. The good
news is that most metal drawer
slides require 1

2″ clearance on each
side for installation. That makes
it easy to figure drawer sizes and
openings. And they can accommodate
either face-frame or frameless
cabinet design.
