Topic tags/keywords: drawer slides

I am planning a Moveable Kitchen Island for my kitchen..

I would like to make drawers in the upper area, right under the counter top part where one would usual find the silverware drawer.

But I want to make them so they can be pulled out from both the front side and the back side the full width of the island and fully extended.

I was wondering if anyone makes a side mounted drawer slide that goes both backward and forwardI guess is what I an saying.

Sounds like a great project and it is a nice idea.

Why don’t you make slides out of hardwood and the drawer will slide on it. There is a site that has a few different models to make your own drawer slides. It is woodgears.ca.

They have been made for sure. Whether you’ll find
them is another matter.

Hafele is a good source for hardware.

Rich, (and I hope you are!) Here are some Accuride choices. Pretty pricey.

The real pricey ones are full-extension, both ways. In
the second row you’ll see them for $42 a set and
those will be built lighter perhaps and also not
be full-extension.

Specs on how far they extend:

If you could find a way to disguise/deal with notches in the drawer front, I’d go for a hardwood rail in the cabinet and a dado in the drawer side. or a bottom mounted wooden dovetail slide, but you’ll still need to notch the drawer front

What if you did a bottom support with guide rails on the side. Use HDPE for the slide blocks. No notches in the drawers to deal with.

Basically, a matchbox design with the drawers flush mounted to the face frame.
