So I has an idea for ya:



Double your load capacity by adding a second set of slides at the top; and, to help prevent the tendency of the drawer to rotate down and away when pulled all the way out (position of maximum stress on the slide, drawer sides, and cabinet sides), set the upper slide in such a way where it hits its maximum extension JUST BEFORE the lower one does.

Uh, no thanks. 100 pounds of capacity is enough that the 3/8" plywood on the bottom would break before I reach it.

Definitely going to need some stringers for the doors, unfortunately. The cupping bothers me just a little too much (it's about 1/8" bowed out at the front).

Mounted the first door, cut and finished the second.


Second door up top, drying.

It's bowing at the front because you're only clamping front/back and the glue is curing at different speeds. Add 1 or 2 clamps in middle and you'll be fine.

Yeah, I figured that out with the second one. No bowing there.

Live and learn, I guess.

3/4" drawer bottoms. Seriously? Why not just whittle the fucking drawer out of a stump at that point?

Go back to electrical, you've got no business in wood.

It's not overkill, it's bad design.

I would never cut a dado in the drawer sides with a depth greater than half the thickness of the stock I used to make the drawer sides, because that would compromise the strength of the drawer sides.

I would never put a drawer bottom on that was of a greater thickness than the depth of the dado I cut in the drawer sides, because then the breaking load will be on the bottom of the drawer side instead of the drawer bottom, and bottoms are easier to replace.

Then. Don't. Cut. Dados.

Geez, do I have to S-P-E-L-L it out for you?
