Working on a cabinet build for the kitchen. I think I’m going to go with the Blum Tandembox drawer system. I’m kinda pressed for time and have lots of other stuff that needs doing AND if I had ordered cabinets, this is the drawer system I would have liked in them.
If you’re unfamiliar, these are like the regular Blum undermounts, except the “drawer profile” (the part that goes on the drawer) is the cabinet side. You basically cut a bottom and a back for each drawer. The drawer front get a pair of fixing clips on it and it snaps into the front of the drawer profile. They have the Blum soft close built in (Blumotion).
For $53 I think I’m going to get the boring jig. It’ll just make life easier and I won’t have to make another jig.
I was originally going to just use the Blum undermounts and make all the drawer boxes and fronts. Going to Tandembox adds about 30% to my hardware expense for the drawers, but saves me some on baltic birch and saves me a lot of time.
They also look cool. :)
