Hey everyone, ahead of time i appreciate any info,advice critique you guys giive, but here is my question, in my picture you see the top drawer, and below is one of those chrome pan racks with the top and bottom pull out, the original cabinet i replaced and made it exactly the same size had two doors there, You can see what ive made and wanted to use it almost like a drawer front, kinda will look like a double door but not, but was worried after making it that the stresses of how it will be used would pull it apart quick, anybody got any thoughts, or advice on this, being its in my own home , id rather scrap it now if someone her has had a similar failure, thanks everyone

Is that a two section (upper and lower pull out independently) chrome rack? If it’s just two sections that pull out at the same time, I see no problem attaching the door to the upper and lower sections. If they are independent, A swing door would be best.

yes “Gene Howe. they pull out independently but mounted to same rack, And im thinking your right with doing the door, i think it would work for a little while, but with the angle of your hand pulling it open and it being attached at the bottom im thinkin it would tear apart. thanks for checkin it out

Have to agree with Gene a door would be best in this case.
