Now, we've gotten the first slide temporarily screwed in place for our test fit. I then repeated this on the opposite side.

Here is my first test fit. It's very close, but will require just a touch of adjustment for a proper fit.

It's off probably about 1/16" Once that is corrected, it will be time to finish the installation.

I think I mentioned this before, but I'll mention it again. Using a clamp on plywood when driving Kreg screws, or other screws, will prevent the plywood from splitting.

While I appreciate your woodworking skill and creativity in building the shelf, why not just use a full extension drawer guide? They are sturdy and have a built in stop and easy to install.

Pre drilling will reduce splitting and won’t leave dimples from the clamp.

If he did it the reasonable, normal or easy way this thread would have been over a year ago! This is a project by an experienced carpenter showing off his skills. It's interesting but you have to just go with the flow....or not.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

I guess the short answer is .... Because I can. Lol. Do not be concerned. This drawer is the only drawer in the coach that I will use this type of slide.

One and done. (Thank goodness for that)!!! Lol.

You will not have to endure more drawers being built like this one.

Ok, ok, the cheering can die down now........

Yes it will. Just another way to accomplish the same job.

Thanks, but I never claimed to be a master anything. I've heard it said, there is a fine line between genius and crazy, and I never claimed to be a genius. Lol.
