That's OK, I never claimed you were a master of anything either! I find most of your carpentry work interesting, just sometimes a bit over reported.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

The interesting thing is, of all the people that follow this, very few ever post anything. It's tough to tell if it's too much detail, just the correct amount of detail, or not enough detail.

Highly unlikely that it's not enough detail.

As a result, I'll keep plugging along.

I only had a very short time today to work, as we spent the afternoon with the son and daughter in law.

I'll post that tomorrow.

If the weatherman is accurate, we are expecting 6 - 12 inches of snow in the next 48 hours. We'll see. Could wind up being a dusting.

Around here, ya just never know. Lol.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Would it be a plus to attach a cord of some sort to the back wall and to the sliding shelf to limit it from sliding all the way out and dropping the oven and causing harm to itself and the one pulling the shelf. Perhaps install a releasing hook of some sort on the self end of the cord to allow removal of the shelf is so desired.

Also a latch to keep the shelf from sliding out during travel.

I like the idea of the slide saving wasted space that typical drawer slides require. It appears there is a gain of 44 cubic inches of storage in a 6 inch high and 22 inch deep drawer. 58.7 cubic inches gained with an 8 inch high drawer. That is a significant gain on a total cabinet install.

Yes, the oven needs to be anchored to the shelf and a stop created to prevent it from slowly extending due to vibration while traveling.

I will have a stop to make sure the drawer is not accidently pulled out too far. That would not be good with an oven sitting on the pulled out portion.

Yes, there will also be a release to pull the shelf out completely as well, and a latch to keep it from moving during travel. Those are all good points to keep in mind when using drawers in a moving vehicle/house.

This drawer will be roughly 12" high and about 26" long. I figure I've gained roughly about 1" in width with the wooden slides.

A set of steel slides will be roughly 1/2" in width for each side. Then we add about 1/2" width for the drawer sides. That results in about 2" less drawer space than the width of the "hole".

This setup uses a touch over 1/2" for the slide and the drawer side. It does save space, and depending on what the drawer is used for, it may make a difference in whether what you want to put in there will fit or not.

I could have cut the sides and slides down to no more than 1/2" per side easily, without sacrificing strength. Yes, it takes more time and effort, but again, it may or may not be worth it depending on your application.

Absolutely. Having it fall out during movement would not be a good thing.

Sitting here watching our 6-10, 8-12, or dusting to a foot of snow fall. Not sure what exactly is going to occur until the end of the storm. Lol.

That translates to 312 cubic inches more useable space over using factory drawer slides. You have gained approx. 1/5th cubic foot space.
