A farmer once told me that a minute of planning was worth an hour of power. Hence my problems last weekend. My task of building a couple of roll-out shelves for our kitchen (mentioned in a previous Weekly) turned out to be more of a challenge than I had anticipated due to two things: geometry and stubbornness. The 1940s era cabinets in my house turned out to be considerably out of square, both horizontal and vertical planes. And I stubbornly decided to go forward with side-mounted drawer slides rather than return them and go with a much more logical choice of center rail drawer slides.
