Hi guys.

I'm probably being really stupid here, but I cant see any way to use the drawer slide jig to fit the bottom drawer of a set?

I actually have a couple of questions:

Firstly, should the drawer slide fit flush with the bottom of the drawer?

(That seems to be how the jig would fit it)

I need the base of the drawer to sit 13mm above the floor of the wardrobe, but the jig sets the drawer slide at 100m.

So do I need to create a home-made jig (13mm wide length of ply on each side) and use that instead, or is there a way to use the jig?

Or could I place the drawer slide at 100mm (each drawer-box is 200m tall), but if I do, then how do I align the middle of the drawer to the slide?

(Thinking about it, do I turn the jig around and clamp it 87mm below the 100mm slide line for the 13mm gap that I need?)

Sorry to ask complete numpty questions, but I 'm new to the big project work and I want to know what the more experienced users do for this type of situation?

Thanks in advance.

Pantry slides for heavy application

  Recently purchased two 96" tall pantry cabinets that are 23" deep that only came with two adjustable shelves and two fixed, (one at about 55" and one at the very bottom).  Shelf holes in the walls are drilled 2" O.C.  Like most store-bought…Continue

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
