Hello , I’m currently building a chest of drawers with curved face frames and sides. I’m looking for the best option for an under mount drawer slide. I have looked at several options including Blum and accuride but they require mounting to the sides of the wall. Unfortunately that’s not an option. Is there a slide similar to the wooden version that I can mount directly to the bottom of the drawer without attaching to the sides?

The Blums and Accurides make a back mounting bracket.

You can use the Blum 563H with rear mounting bracket.

The 563H is for drawers with 1/2 to 5/8 thick drawer material. 563F is for 3/4 drawer material thickness. What you building the drawer out of??

I think this still requires screwing the runners to the inside of the side panel. I have a Salice Futura set of under mount slides from woodcraft but I think they will interfere with the curvature of the frame.

I’m planning on building the drawers out of either 1/2 poplar or maple for the sides.

The undermounts (blums or whatever) won’t work unless there installed flat, the curve won’t let that happen.
Why don’t you make some spacer blocks to attach to the insides and then the drawer guides could screw to the blocks.

If your going to post picture you should learn how to do it. It’s much easier than the project you’re building.
