Bending wood can be a bit of a chalange. Especially if it's a laminated bend. For this I resaw strips down to 1/8" or so, depending on species. The challenge comes when you glue it together.
 The glue is either 15 minute working time or 2 days in clamps. Being the immediate gratification type I always use the 15 minute.
 So I needed a faster way to clamp the parts to the form. I searched books and magazines for some time and then it hit me. Eye bolts.  I came up with what is, by far, the fastest and cheapest way to do laminated bends.
 The choices in cabinet hardware have expanded in recent years. There is a large selection of convenience hardware available to help you maximize storage along with more choices for drawer boxes to make your cabinets truly your own.
Roll-outs, flip-ups, dividers, gallery rails and more to make the best use of the space available

 One option is soft close drawers. These are very nice but are a bit more expensive than our standard 100 lb., full extension guides. When the drawer is closed it "grabs " it about 2" from the cabinet and closes it softly the rest of the way. You would be surprised how quickly you get used to these and fall in love with them. It is available for doors as well.

 They now have touch to open drawers. I have not seen them yet. They are electronic and may be quite pricey but I can't wait to try them out.
