Update: 11/26/12 – I added shelves to the wall. I think it worked out pretty good.

Soooo I think this is called a sideboard. I have called it a great many things. Overall I am pretty pleased with it. It has soft close drawer slides and weighs about 900lbs. The center drawers are almost 4ft. I did this because we need the storage. My home has a lot of living space but not much storage. I also wanted to make sure all those games fit because I could not stand seeing them on shelves. The top drawer has a nested drawer in it and you can see pics of it. Works pretty slick.

I think I will do a blog on the drawer slides. Being my only experience is with this brand of slides I can only speak to them.

I still am considering flocking the drawer bottoms. My next project is a shelving unit that matches the style and design of the side board and will hang on the wall above it.

If you look at most slide install directions there is a max reccomended width of drawer. To get a really wide drawer to behave use the lateral file cabinet slides. They have an upper and lower slide section with a rubber wheel between them,so it has a progressive action as it is pulled out.
Nice looking piece of furniture!
