Sorry for the delay, folks. I've been trying to post this for 3 days, and it looks like I'll finally git 'er done tonight. Lol.

Anyhow, my last post showed the mini router table I made for my portable router.

So, what can you do with one? Something like this......

And something like this......

If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

What is that good for?

Well, (IN SOME CIRCUMSTANCES), it makes a nice, drawer slide.

Now I know it sounds like I've lost my mind. What else is new? Lol.

This actually works really well, when done properly.

Here's a pic of one of them in use that I built for my brother's kitchen cabinets years ago.

The left side is labeled, "Maple". That is the side of the drawer with a tapered groove cut into it.

The male piece, as you can see, is of plywood, and also tapered.

The piece of Oak on the right, is the front face of the cabinet.

What I did was NOT apply any finish on the slide mechanism. I did, however, give it a light sanding to make sure things were smooth.

Second, I coated all of this with Minwax Paste Finishing Wax.

Here is what happens. The wax works it way into the wood. After I built these, and waxed them initially, he only had to wax them one additional time, and they have been using them for over 30 years.

They slide in and out with ease, and noise free.

One of his grandkids shows up, pulls the drawers out part way, and climbs up onto the counter. Grandkid weighs about 50 lbs or so.

Here is the wax I use for this.

Like I said, it's not good for every situation, but it works well in some applications.

I like that drawer technique... simple and effective.

I actually works quite well. As long as the components are sized correctly for the weight being used, it will hold up for a long time.

As you know, I am working around the rear area of the interior, in the bath area. Sometimes, little things can escape your view, when your mind is concentrated on something else.

Such is the case here. The rear window that I installed is an emergency exit window, and I also will be using it for ventilation at times.

You may remember that I am also adding a sliding cover for the window back there.

This will slide in from the right side, and cover the window, and therein lies the beginning of "trouble". Lol.

As you can see here - the clamps that hold the window closed, are not flush with the inside of the back wall.
