How to make organizers ride on slides

Both the slide-out trays and the cookie-sheet organizer require full-extension, side-mounted slides (see Source) that attach to your cabinets. The cabinet-mounted part of each slide first requires slide-mounting strips.

• For a single-door base cabinet, cut two strips 2 1/2" wide and plane them to fit flush with the face-frame stiles, as shown far right. Screw the strips to the cabinet sides with their bottom edges on the cabinet bottom.
• For a double-door cabinet with a center stile, as shown on page 4, first mount strips inside the cabinet as in a single-door cabinet. From 3/4x2 1/2" hardwood, cut two slide-mounting strips that reach from the inside face of the center stile to the cabinet back.

From 3/4"-thick hardwood, cut two spacer blocks to a width equal to the width of the cabinet?s center stile minus 1 1/2". Then cut both blocks 2 1/2" long. Center, drill, and screw a spacer block to the center stile at the bottom. Measure from the cabinet side to the center-stile spacer block and screw another spacer block to the cabinet back that distance from the side. Drill and screw slide-mounting strips to the front and back spacer blocks, as shown below right.

Great way to help the wife. I'm half way through my base cabinets now, but I used bottom slides instead of side mounts. It was easier to position them on exsisting shelving.

In the drawer organizer, one option is to make the center divider straight and instead drill a 1" hole in it so you can easily grab it and pull the tray out of the drawer. This is nice if you're setting utensils out for large parties.
