Many THANKS to all that commented.

Fantastic job Rick! When I get into my own house someday this is what I plan on doing in almost every low level cabinet. In my opinion, I’d rather have functionality and this is one of the best cabinet improvements one can do to accomplish that.

nicely done

if they only had one slide on the small drawer then chances are the slide would bend, ball bearing would fall out and the drawer wouldnt work. Two keeps the drawer ridgid

If only my cabinets had so few items…lol I installed the sliding wire racks in my lower kitchen cabinets. It does help reduce the pile of stuff. Thanks for posting.

Definitely going to have to “borrow” this idea – what a nice way to utilize the under-sink area. Great work.

Well Antonio …...Regretably I’m not Married. I was for 24 Years and I’d do it again in a Heartbeat!!

Woodworking, Fishing, Freedom?, EH!!?? I would MUCH rather have “that holy woman I have yet to marry” by my side SHARING all the BEST Things Life & Love have to offer.

WAIT! What does this have to do with Woodworking … You Casanova..You ;-}

Hey! I know! Why don’t you give SOPHIA a call and see if you can set up a Date for me?? :-))))

Antonio My Friend:

You do not need to apologise for anything!! Your Comment was well intentioned. I took it as more of a joke than anything. How could you of possibbly known that I wasn’t married? I did not find it to be the LEAST bit offensive or disturbing.

However!! Gentleman are known by how they conduct themselves. You. Antonio, are most assuredly one of those Gentleman. Therfore, from one Gentleman to another ….. I thank you for your concern.

Best Regards: Rick

GREAT piece Rick.
I did just single tray pull out under the sink in my 1920’s kitchen several years ago.
Looking at this one makes me think it’s time for a redo.

I agree with Moron’s reasoning on the two slides.
I like your approach better.
Not only does it eliminate the need for the extra slides – but you don’t have to stoop all the way down to the lower tray to pull it out. Something that becomes more important to me as the years go by :-) .

You seem like a man after my own heart. I enjoy looking at plans to get an idea—but I don’t think I have ever followed a set to the letter in my life.
OK – once—but it was at the customer’s insistance—and it was one of those—‘strictly for the money’ projects.

Thanks for the kind words! YEP! I believe we fell from the same “Apple Tree” my Friend.

PLANS are a Rough Guide, then you let your Brains loose and come up with a Better Way.

Your “Signature Line” wraps that up pretty well!
