The Buffet went over so well I decided to make a matching piece. I added the thru tenons on the stretchers, but the rest is very similar comstruction as my buffet. The drawers have no metal runners, I just donot like the look or feel of any I have looked at. My favorite way is to use 3/4” wide strips of stickey backed UHMW above,below & on each side of the drawer box. The drawers are a bit of a challenge to fit just right, but the feel is just what I was looking for. They slide in & out with little or no effort & no sign of hardwear.
