Help with drawer slides
I recently salvaged a sturdy 30" high "counter cabinet" used in a govt. office. !'m going to use it as a bench and drawered storage along one end of my shop.
It's 109" long and 24" deep. It was divided into 3 equal storage areas under the top. I have further divided it into 7 areas with 3 being approx. 11 1/4 wide and 4 at approx. 16 1/2 wide. All the dividing panels are 3/4 a/c ply, pocket screwed at the bottom and top of each panel.
I want to install 6 1/2 deep drawers across the 109" top and similar depths (what ever it works out to be) in all of the 11/14 wide openings.
In the wider openings, will go 10" deep drawers at the bottom of each remaining 4 openings with The balance of the drawers between the bottom and top at, again whatever it works out to be for depth.
Now, my question: Bearing in mind that these are shop drawers and will carry at most 50 lbs in the larger drawers, Would you use full extension metal side glides, "L" shaped slides and slick tape made from oak/maple or dove tail center glides?
If it makes any difference, the drawers will be dado jointed together and made of 1/2" BB with 1/4" hard board bottoms and 1/2" BB applied fronts.
Thanks you, I really appreciate your helpful suggestions.
