Wood reclaimed and milled from old dresser drawer faces. Don’t know what kind of wood it is, do you?

Very nice. This is one project that I also need to take care of. I have some extra full extension slides and have been thinking about this for a long time.

I can see the overlay face frames. What did you use as a spacer on the inside to get the slides out to the drawer, just a laminated chunk of plywood or something?

I knew the sides had to be inset the width of the whole track so I cut the face to the width of the cabinet opening leaving one sixteenth of an inch on either side. I used the rails as spacers inset my sides to the drawer accordingly plus 1/16th”. If you look at the drawer on my table saw picture you will see the complete rail mounted. I just winged it and used that as my spacing and set up my mounting rails inside the cabinet flush with the cabinet opening. It all fit perfectly. I dadoed out the front back and sides for the drawer bottom to slide in which is MDF with a white shiny side. I basically mounted the complete slides to the drawer front flush, plus that 1/16”. After that process I took the cabinet rails off the drawer mounted them inside the cabinet and then the drawer just slid right in I hope that answered your question.

These drawers look nice, especially considering that the wood was salvaged.
