Undermount drawer slides are the hardware of choice for most custom cabinetmakers and high-end manufacturers these days. Do they have a place in fine furniture making? Biill Duckworth tested nine high-performing undermount slides that he believes deserve a place in the fine furniture shop. He compared price, ease of installation, and in-use features, and come up with five standouts: Accuride Eclipse Easy-Close, Accuride Eclipse Self-Close, Blum Tandem Blumotion, Hettich Quadro IW Silent System, Knape & Vogt In-Line 9400 series.
