Funny, I had a architectural millwright call me today to go do some IT work for him, he is going to get me all the hardware I need at cost!

vchiarelli Having just finished some kitchen cabs, the carcasses (boxes) are 23 1/2" deep. When you add doors (3/4") it brings it out to 24 1/4" - the counter top is generally 25". I made a couple banks of drawers - same depth (with 3/4" drawer fronts) - all slides were 22" - full extension.

The melamine sheets are generally 49" x 97". First rip is at about 24" for a clean edge, then reset the saw to 23 1/2" to trim off the factory edge on both pieces. Gables at 30" gives you 6 gables out of a sheet, or a combination of gables, bottoms, shelves. We run a groove at the backs of gables, bottoms of 5/8" melamine to insert a 1/8" backing and leave 5/8" inch for nailers at the back.

Stick486 build a frameless cabinet and add ''X'' thickness of edge banding to the cabinet to give you your required depth/wiggle room..
go for the fuzz of over travel...
and some character into it too...

DesertRatTom I'd go with the 22 inch with full extension. Gives you a deep drawer with a little wiggle room to adjust the drawer's fit in the case, or to fit a false front. In woodworking, I like to leave a little wiggle room.

DaninVan "... a framed box 24-5/8'' deep...
a frameless box at 23-7/8'' deep.."

My bad. I should have explained that better, but having said that, 22" slides might still be a safer choice.

Stick486 w/ a rebated rabbet on 1/2'' stock you can have a drawer 24-3/8'' deep, OS measure...
and a framed box 24-5/8'' deep...
a frameless box at 23-7/8'' deep..
alwats measure the cuts to the center of the blade to share the waste to each piece cut...

The 24" model's a tich under 24" in length.
Are you sure you will end up with a clear 24"? Normally, for pragmatic and economic reasons a 4' sheet of stock is ripped lengthwise in 1/2 yielding less than 24" wide gables, then there's losses (maybe) when the back frame elements are installed...I run rebates around the back of my components and set my rear dustpanel inset.
You might be safer with 22" slides(?).
