I would ASSUME that they will not be as smooth, which I truly do not care, my question is will it work? Any tips or suggestions. Pocket drawers will go 25 inches in to my wasted attic space. 25x11x9inches (12)


Short answer yes you can. You should start a new thread and I'm sure you'll get some detailed suggestions real quick.
