I am in the process of designing a new kitchen, most of this will be built by myself from old english oak. Im intending to use stainless steel drawer slides with a soft close option but im having trouble finding decent ones in the UK

has anyone got any ideas as to where i could locate some of these

We have an introduction section where you can say a few words about yourself. If you fill out your profile in your "User Control Panel", you can list any hobbies, experience or other facts. You can also list your general geographical location which would be a help in answering some questions. In doing that your location will show under your username when you post.

Are you sure you want stainless steel? They cost about 10x more.

Just so you know,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, drawer glides were invented by the devil...................... As a way to prompt people to make up new curse words!

Have fun with the kitchen cabinets, sounds like a great project.

??????????

I do not understand your comment. I think the full extension ones were invented by an Angel. For about $7.00 per drawer what can you get that is better?

What difference does it make who owns what slides? Is this just a spam post to get in a link?

Seems so. Not really sure why he would need custom length slides. The sizes provided by accuride cover a wide variety and im sure accuride has a site of their own that's not hard to find or will pull up a different site
