I built this entertainment center for a client with pull-out media storage and used 10" full extension Dynaslide rails, mounted top and bottom, that I picked up from Austin Hardwood in So. California. From the picture you can't tell, but when they are extended all the way, there is a lot of play and with some CD's loaded they seem to bind a little.
Has anyone else come across this problem? At first I attempted to mount the slides on the side but it did the same thing. If anyone has any recommendations on slides that don't have as much play, it would be great, especially if Austin carries them. I want to get this corrected for the client ASAP.
From contributor A:
I have not made any drawers like yours yet, but I have seen some with 2 slides on each side (1 top and 1 bottom). They were pretty solid. Maybe you can make a new box and try 4 slides?
Mount solid block to top and bottom fixed floors in cabinet tall enough for slide height plus 1/8 clearance top and bottom. Mount main body on blocks just like you would a cabinet side. Mount the other part of slides to vertical blocks mounted on rollout. Refer to pic. Sorry I do not have close ups to show you how it is set up but I think you will get the drift. It is just like a drawer but slides are mounted the opposite way so it conceals hardware when opened.
