[Project 19] Finishing Cabinet Pull Out Thing
« on: February 12, 2019, 12:38 AM »
I have a sliver of about 5" between some storage racks and my tool box.

I decided to make a really skinny pull-out multi-tier thingy-ma-bober to store my Deft lacquer spray, other bottles of stuff, et cetera.

Basically anything that is really skinny ;)

Using 4 drawer slides - 2 on top and 2 on bottom... we'll see how it goes.

Almost done.

The lower set of slide should be vertical so the bearings carry the load. You only need one on top to guide.

OK you guys were right it sags a lot. I'll re-do it and mount them on the side but whatever, at least it's in for now ;)

Matt. Nice cabinet idea...Yes slides in that orientation are not too strong....don't ask me how I know...lol

Doing something similar in my mitersaw station, putting 2 pullouts in one lower cabinet to store fasteners in bins...going to be a bit of weight in them...was thinking of using 4 slides (vertical) 2 top 2 bottom just not sure the top ones will really carry any load...anyone have any thoughts.....

If you're just doubling up on the slides, yes, it will help to manage the heavy drawer.  You see them do that in mechanics toolboxes, where the top drawer is full width and 4" deep.  Typically that drawer will get loaded with sockets and can get over 200 lbs easily.  Just make sure the cabinet supporting the drawer is sufficiently heavy so the loaded drawer can't tip it over when fully opened (or bolt it down).

Hi RKA. Thanks. Was actually meaning one set on bottom of slide/drawer and other set at top of slide/drawer...slide will be about 28 inches tall...(sorry no picture)....so not sure if you understood that.....In the case where the slides are that far apart I'm not sure if the top slides will carry any load...as to me it seems like the load would be almost hanging from the top slides.

Now that I've read what you described where both slides are almost stacked (like a mechanic toolbox)...that makes sense and be a better fit for my project...then I would just have to install a guide or slide on the top of the slide out to keep it aligned.
Thanks, Greg

I think you're right, I'm misunderstanding something.  I'm talking about a standard drawer with horizontally mounted slides.  Re-reading both your posts I'm confused.  Maybe sketch something, take a pic and upload it here?

RKA..hmm I just re read my post and no wonder you were confused....I'm confused..lol

So what I should have said is I'm getting ready to make "Pullouts" like Matt (OP) and was thinking of putting slides on the bottom and top sides of the pullout....but was wondering if the top slides would actually carry any weight.

Since I'm worse at drawing than apparently explaining myself here's a picture of what I'm talking about building. In my case it will be in a base cabinet 12 inches wide 29 inches tall. I would be making a drawer basically and turning it vertical and adding some shelves for bins. Unlike the picture, I would have to have structure on the top of mine to mount slides in the same manner as the bottom slides are mounted in the picture...hope that clears it up.

Matt you could handle that tall skinny drawer with just one pair of slides. One slide at the bottom right way up as Tom said and one at the top sideways as you have it. Assuming they’re typical 100# capacity the one at the bottom should be able to carry as much as you can fit in the cabinet (less than 50#) unless you load it with full boxes of screws.

@gnlman okay, then I understood you the first time.  2 slides on each side will beef it up.  It shouldn’t matter that one slide is up top and one at the bottom.

Height adjustment of the second (stacked) slide will be tricky so after thinking a little more I’d go with 2 vertical slides. A little off on the spacing will be less of a problem than if one of the top slide is horizontal. Just do a careful layout and get the screws in the centered in right places and it should work ok.
