« Part 8: Sliding doors Part 9 of Bookcase with Sliding Doors series Part 10: Base with Horse hoof legs »

I removed the top and middle panels to cut grooves for the door slide hardware. The grooves are 7mm wide by 9mm deep. I cut the grooves 7/16” from the edge with a 1” seperation.

The pictures show details of the groove, hardware for the doors, and the track insert. The hardware is 2 upper and 2 lower, 35mm euro-hinge style, inserts. The upper hardware have an adjustable tab while the lower hardware have an adjustable tab+roller. All pieces are made of plastic so we’ll see how well they stand up in use. I haven’t pushed the track insert all the way in. It has ridges running the length of the track which grip the sides of the groove very tightly.
