« Part 7: Face frame dry fit Part 8 of Bookcase with Sliding Doors series Part 9: Grooves for the door slide hardware »

Here are the two sliding door frames with dominos cut in and assembled for the dry fit. I’ve placed them in the case behind the face frame to make sure that they do actually fit in there. Tomorrow I’ll glue everthing up and then cut the tracks in the top and bottom case pieces for the door slide hardware. The clamps are there so the frames don’t decide to fall forward and scratch 2 nights worth of sanding.

Looks good. Do you have any progress pics that show the track construction?

How do they ride in the case?

I should have the tracks completed today and will post pics of the process this evening. They use the euro-hinge style roller kit from Rocklers.

How well does the rockler kit work? Do you get really smooth sliding action?
