Good job!

Next time, try 4x4 direct for the big sliders.

I bought a set of 800mm heavy duty's there for R370 two weeks ago.

For the lighter-duty stuff there is a furniture wholesaler here in Kempton who is even cheaper (R170 for a set of 25kg 600mm sliders)

Doh :redface:
411.09 for a pair... I was looking the price of two pairs.
430.00 at 4x4 direct.

This is a close up showing the bent sides for the drawers and how the drawer slides fit in the recess.

I was fretting about how I was going to bend the aluminium sheet until I mentioned my problem to the guy that cut the sheets for me. He pointed me to a small engineering firm and an hour later they were done:)
