I built this sliding door cabinet from a picture in a stickley furniture catalog. The height was lowered to fit under an angled roof line. It is constructed from poplar and poplar plywood as it will be painted. There was an excellent article in Fine Woodworking #172 on making sliding doors that helped in the design process.

A cool design and great build ,many of things I’ve built are from photos,it can be a challenge to work out scaling from photos.
