I’m building new drawers for an old vanity that currently only has one and this is the first time I’m dealing with drawer slides. They are bottom mount The piece on the drawer is 19 inches and the piece in cabinet looks lik it’s 19-1/2 (mayb 20 since it goes into a plastic bracket in the back of the cabinet) My question is am I correct to order the 20 inch slides?
Where do u folks buy them at? I’ve found some on amazon but I’m not opposed to ording them from somewhere else.

Are they mono rail guides ?

Don’t know if your correct or not

If they are the monorail guides,,,,,,you can get 22 in and hacksaw em if your unsure of length

And the back bracket is very forgiving as the guide can slide in or out approx 1 1/4 inch if i remember correctly

I have not used that type for 35 or so years,,,,,with exception to RV cabinetry,,,,,,commonly used there

There are loads of sites selling drawer slides. https://www.woodworkerexpress.com is my first stop since their prices generally are good, and service is excellent.

I can’t tell from your post if you already bought slides or not. If you haven’t, Blum are pretty hard to beat. Full extension Blumotion cost a little more, but they are such high quality.

I have read multiple places that Wurth Woodworks has really good slides for great prices.
