Gang, I need a refresher course on how to hang the front of an undermount drawer slide to the inside of a cabinet. I am using inset drawers (see picture) so the slide can’t be mounted to the inside of the drawer opening, else it would be seen. The slide I’ve picked out doesn’t have a diagram for this type of application that I can tell… Am I barking up the wrong tree trying to use this slide? I was thinking about using the Knape and Vogt MuV undermount drawer slides for these cabinets. Has anyone here used them before? Are you happy with them? They look a little better than the Blum slides I’ve used in the past, but are more expensive. Do you have a recommendation on a slide similar to the KV MuV slide that is a little less pricey? I only need 3/4 slides for these cabinets, but it looks like the KV MuV only come in full extension models. If I go with the KV MuV slides I’ll need a supplier, too, if you know a good one.
Here’s a picture of my cabinet to help with the description I gave. The top 4 drawer faces and the side have been removed so you can see my question better. Since the drawer face is an inset drawer, I can’t attach the slide to the inside of the drawer opening on the face frame:
Appreciate any advice you have on this. Thanks!
