I designed this jewelry box on stand with the initial plan calling for the use of 50 # single slidders on the bottom of the side drawers. It did not work. At full or 2/3rds extension, there is a noticeable sage.
A few friends and I thought about adding side x side 12 inch drawer slides to overcome the 60% loss of slider strength (per manufacture) that occurs when using their hardware inappropriately.
Here are some pictures to give you some idea of the corner I have “boxed” myself into, pun intended.
Top of case
Another idea was to add a 3/8th inch brass strip to the center top of the vertical drawer as a runway for a bullet portion of a bullet catch to run along. Place this about 2 inch inside the drawer opening top to limit the drawer sage toward the last 1/3rd of the drawer run. Also, I made the drawer tooooo heavy to begin with.
Any help/ideas with be greatly appreciated. This was supposed to be a Christmas present for 2013, a little late.
