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..

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?

I use parafin wax that you get from the canning supply section..works 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..
