I have always used drawers without mechanical runners in my furniture, but am being pushed toward soft close runners, particularly the under-mount ones. Some argue that antiques that are 200 years old did not use such modern contraptions, but OTOH they did not have them to use.
I am about to build a chest of drawers for my son and he wants under-mount soft close runners. What to do, what to do???
I just got about a hundred euro style hinges at a freight auction. I am good to go.
