Hi

Has anyone mounted Blum undermount drawer runners to a solid wood case? I need some advice on how to attach these to a solid wood case without constricting wood movement. I know one can probably drill out the holes on the Blum runner itself to make it elongated, but I do not want to do that if not absolutely necessary. Any other ideas?

Attach the slides to a piece of wood that has elongated holes in it. Then attach the piece of wood to the inside of the case through the elongated holes.

Thanks for the suggestion, but wouldn’t that take up a lot of space and make the drawer narrow? I even thought of maybe using a dodo with a sliding piece of wood in it onto which I attach the runner, but all this seems to be too complicated. There must be a simpler solution.

I really dont think there would be enough movment to worry about, but if you want to you can use the rear mount brackets, they are slotted , would provide plenty of movement room. me personally do not like rear mount brackets, but they do work.

I will have a look at the rear mounting ones. I also suspect that it might be ok to just screw them to the sides as the screws will allow some movement, but I do not have experience with this so I am not sure.

Have your say...
