That is kickass! Well, if you cant fix a car, at least you can fall back on your woodworking skills. LOL

nice, but I'd poly or paint them, grease etc won't be kind to that wood, and if the weather is like hear, when the wood swells it be a r.p.i.t.a. to open the draws..

im partial to the bare wood look so they probably just gonna end up with fe good coats of polly wood will have to swell quite a bit I got at least a 1/4 inch clearance on everything

ok, maybe you'll know.. if I may pick your brain
my home built in 1934 with kitchen cab's that where built onsite..
have no slides, it's wood on wood, the draws stick you have to lift then a little to break them free then they slide fine.. what should be used on the draws and wood they run on.. I was thinking maybe candle wax?

fncracing 02-10-2013 07:01 PM

regular bar soap out of the bathroom actually works or wax them with candle wax just rub either on the parts that are rubbing should help

I use parafin wax that you get from the canning supply great and leaves no residue..use it on the tablesaw top to keep the rust at bay and gives a slick surface. Also on drawer guides and such as well..
