Thanks for the photos Ron. That's what I want to do. Much easier than being down on your knees trying to get something out that is way in the back on the bottom shelf.

Ron,
What slides did you use, and what is the drawer height?

Nice... Did you just use wood glue to hold the mittered corners?

I also made slide out draw under our microwave. I did use basic butt joints to the corners using wood glue and finishing nail gun.

I did use wood glue, let me tell you, you did a hell of a nice job, Rose loves it. That is a real professional job.

Thanks for the nice words. I did not make the cabinet doors, only the slide-out draw and just mounted the door in front. It used to be a regular cabinet with swing out doors.

I hear you, but the draw is nice, and I like the metal caps you have on them.

I found some drawer slides on clearance ($2 per pair) at the local hardware store. They are the type that combine the sides of the drawer with the sliding track so all you need to add is the bottom, back and front. I bought some plywood for the project but had almost forgotten that I had everything. The weather was great for working outside yesterday so I cut all the wood needed for the job.

I'll use Ron's idea of keeping the cupboard door(s) in place and set my four drawer unit just inside (butting up against) the cupboard doors. I think the Blum hinges on the doors will keep the drawers in place when driving. The drawer bottoms square footage adds up to 11.95 sq ft!

We did ours like Ron's, with the tracks underneath the drawer, because we had lots of height available, compared to width, and the slide cost you somewhere in the 3/8" apiece, wherever they are. Didn't want to lose the 3/4" in width, and don't miss 3/8" in height at all. The slides have holds built in that hold them in, not enough to counteract driving forces, but the latch on the door is tight enough to keep them in place, as they are right up against the closed door. Ours are also unmitred, pin nailed with urethane glue, and made out of baltic birch plywood. 3/8" on the sides and 1/4 on the bottom.
