Well, I painted myself into a corner. I have some off time now, kitchens are all done. My sister has me building a wall unit for storing her scrapbook stuff. She wanted all of these small cubby hole style drawers, the kind that inset and do not run on drawer glides. This is a pain to build because of all these small drawers.
I did not design with drawer glides in mind but I do not like the way the drawer works without glides. Since they are tiny drawers, I elected to place one “side mount” KV TT100 centered laying flat under the drawer. This will sturdy the drawer and allow it to glide in and out nicely and weight will not be an issue using them this way as they are small drawers.
OK, mounting to the underside of the drawer is no problem, then I went to mount the mating part of the glide inside the cubby hole. OOOOPs, I did not think this one through. I have small ridgid 12v drills but still to large to be used inside these cubbys. Nothing I have will fit inside so then my wheels are spinning about how to fasten the 2nd part of the glide inside the cubby hole.
Well, I told my sister she could donate 100.00 to the project, after all she is getting the best deal on this unit. So this evening I am off to buy the Titebond Hipurformer gun. I think it will get more use then you would think because there are task in cabinet building where this thing could come in handy.
I did read a review here at LJ on this product. Does anyone else have any comments about this product. I also was wondering if I have a joint put together incorrectly, can I reapply heat and reverse the joint and take a joint apart without destruction??? I have always wondered that about cabinet doors. When I mess up on a cabinet door, it means destructing the door because TB II does not come apart.
