I am building a set of drawers that are going inside a jewelry chest and am having a hard time finding the right drawer slide. I would like to find a concealed (under mount) type but I don’t want false fronts on the drawers
I am building 5 drawers that need to fit into a 16 1/2” square cabinet.
Anybody have any suggestions?

Many thanks!!

Try using a sliding dovetail. That should solve your problem

if the interior is 16” you could use 15” blum tandem undermounts. The total debth would be 15 1/2” for the guide or so. Your drawer would be 15”, providing the front and back is 1/2” material.

Hopefully this link works until I can figure how to post pics.
This is what I’m going for.
Do you have to use false fronts with the Blum Tandums?
Thanks for your quick responses!

The Blum wont work. You will see them under the drawer. Looking at your pic, very nice unit .
I would lean towards a homemade slide like Unionlable said.
