Where can I buy additional drawer slides for my VARDE Base Cabinet?

Anyone know where can I buy additional drawer slides for my VARDE Base Cabinet? They are not side mounted, but mounted underneath. I want to build 2 additional drawers for this small kitchen cabinet. Thanks.

Wow, two Varde questions in the same time span that get no responses? Come on Ikea Fans! Has no one tried to modify the Varde line?

Here are some online sites that sell cabinet hardware. You can find the drawer slides you'll need here. I'm assuming the Varde line uses Blum hardware?

Wow, Neil...you're right. I think, from what I've seen that the VARDE line does not use the same hardware as the AKURUM line. I think if you're going to make your own drawers, you could use whatever hardware you like. The 3 sources that Neil gave are 3 that I would recommend as well.

Let us know how this has turned out for you?

You can buy the "upgrade" for older drawers, which is just what you need: a set of slides and a pair of dampers at $19.99 per drawer.
