You buy push to release drawer slides that will hold the drawer closed and no need for catches, etc. I used them on my pantry project. See the blog for more info: www.mightybus.wordpress.com

Self closing yes BUT what about when you want them to "stay open" while you put things in or get things out??

Just a thought


HTH

Yep, the boss over ruled my idea for this very reason. 

Thanks for the many ideas everyone.  Going to try a few out on the many other drawers we have planned.  Especially the rare earth magnets and the clever machine-screw-in-the-track idea.

Here one that was used before we got it. 1 screw at the top of each bank of drawers and one at the bottom. Now stretch a Bungee cord from one to another. Hey it worked well just was a bit crude looking. When you get there you take them off. Shocked
