Hey all,

I finally got around to making some pull out drawers for my kitchen pantry, so I can get to the stuff thats WAY in the back…. Now I just need to install them.

The drawers are flat bottomed. Literally just a 1×4 perimeter frame screwed down onto the MDF base. the only bottom mount/ under mount slides I can find require a recessed base.

Could someone point me in the right direction here?

TIA

Wiliam

I made pullouts for our kitchen and two bathrooms a couple of years ago. I used euro glides, since the kitchen drawers already had those. They work just fine and cost is reasonable. Pullouts/drawers need to be one inch narrower than the cabinet opening.

I think the “requirement” for a recessed bottom is so that you won’t see that gap under the drawers. I’m sure you can make it work and just have a gap under the drawer where the slides will be.

or make the drawers narrower, and use side mounts slides like so:

See, I just want a slide that mounts to the bottom of the box and to the bottom of the cabinet….. I know they exist. I’ve seen them pre-mounted on boxes…..
