I built a storage / work bench in my garage about 8 years ago. It’s about 8 feet wide and 2 feet deep. Under the bench top, there are 3 drawers wide about 6 inches high, no drawer slides, they just ride on 2×2s underneath. then under the drawers are 2 open shelves under each drawer. The shelves contain a lot of heavy heavy items. Plumbing suppliees, boxes of nails and screws, Shooting brass and bullets.
what i’d like to do is :
2. I want to build low tray type drawers for the shelves so that it’s easier to reach the stuff in the back of the shelves.
Wanted to get advice on what type of drawer slides i could get , and where to buy slides that would be strong enough to support the weight. example is one tray alone will hold 50 – 60 pounds of nails and screws, which is what is on one of the lower shelves.
