Drawer Slides

Nine Models for Nine Situations

by Brad Holden

Open the drawer of a well-made modern cabinet. How do the slides feel? They should be effortless, smooth and precise.  You have more than a dozen types of slides from which to choose. For that perfect glide, the trick is to match the situation and the slide. 

Here are nine common kinds of drawers and recommendations for the type of slide to buy for each. As to the specific brand and model, lots of good choices are available. With each drawer, I’ve listed one of my favorites. You’ll find information about where to find a distributor for each slide in the Sources, below. 

Dovetailed Drawer

Don’t cover beautiful dovetails with a side-mount slide. Use a totally concealed, ball-bearing undermount slide. They’re the latest thing for high-end kitchen cabinet drawers. These particular slides are super-smooth and have a self-closing mechanism. Buy the slides before you build the drawers, though. The slides have specific requirements regarding the thickness of the drawer sides and the location of the drawer bottom. 


Face-Frame Cabinets

Two simple brackets added to a side-mount, ball-bearing slide make installation a lot easier than building out a cabinet’s sides to be flush with the face frame. Fasten the front bracket to the face frame. Clip the slide onto it. Then clip on the rear bracket and attach it to the cabinet’s back. If the back is only 1/4 in. thick, apply a mounting block to the back so the bracket’s screws can get a solid grip. 


Outdoor Drawer

Exposure to the elements causes a slide to rust and corrode, and there’s no easy way to clean it. There is an answer: stainless steel slides rated for outdoor use. They’ll hold up well on this patio potting table.


Tall Drawer

I bought the legs for my table, rather than turn them myself. It isn’t as much fun, but it is much quicker. Here are three legs I considered. They’re all made from solid 2-3/4-in. stock, with no glue lines, and are sanded ready to go. I chose the middle leg for my table. These suppliers make many more leg styles in various widths, lengths and wood species.


Melamine Drawer

For a white drawer, use a white slide. These particular roller slides are a bottom-mount style, so-called because they wrap around the bottom edge of the drawer side. Melamine drawers are often assembled in the simplest fashion, with a bottom that attaches directly underneath the drawer side. These slides cover that joint and help support the drawer bottom.

Small Drawer

A small drawer requires an equally small slide. For a piece as nice as this tiny keepsake chest, use a ball-bearing slide. This particular slide doesn’t take up much room: One half is housed in the drawer side and the other is only 1/4 in. thick. Unlike other slides, th...
