I’m was thinking in making some 2-way drawers for a bar that divides a kitchen and the living, so you could open these drawers from both sides.
The easiest way would be to make a simple drawer and let it slide from one side to the other. I was trying to figure out how to make it lock in the closed position so you don’t end with half opened drawers.
I’ve found some sliders online, but I’m not sure I can find them here (Argentina).
My first idea war to put some blocks under the drawer near the front and end, and make them stop at the inner side of the frame. To open the drawer you sould lift your side, then pull.
The thins I don’t like about this is that the front of the drawers has to be a bit shorter in height than the slot were ir runs (to allow you to lift the drawer before pulling).
Any ideas? How are 2-way drawers make without special hardware?
Thanks a lot
