Does anyone know a brand or model number of a full extension metal bearing drawer slide (17" or longer) that will enable a drawer or tray to slide out of opposites sides of a table?  I have two projects in mind.  The first is for one of my workbenches.  I would like to make a large tray drawer that can be pulled out on the side of the bench that I'm working on without having to go around.  I have some basic homemade wood ones for a smaller drawer there now but I want to go to roller bearings for a larger one that will be loaded much more.  The second is for a butcher block top island that will go in the kitchen.
I checked the catalogs I have and have not found any.  Thanks.

Search for "pass through slides" or "2 way slides" .

Full extension, two way travel by Accuride.

Too slow to the reply.

Not sure if this is applicable, but I remembered seeing a pass through style drawer in one of Peter Parfitt's Youtube videos.

You can see it around 1:11

Great info. I was just wondering this the other day. I have a customer with a cabinet "peninsula" with doors on both sides. She wants pull out shelves. I just built 3 drawer/tray shelves today for the pantry cab using one of hers for a sample to measures from. :) Thanks!

You could make a wooden drawer slide. Use a hard wood. It will be plenty strong. Askwoodman features this design on his workbench.
