Ok, so I am in the midst of designing my bathroom vanity in a mid-century modern style. It is 48” long with six drawers, pretty standard. Basically its 3 boxes 18”,12”,18” with an applied end and bottom. I am going to add 2 sliding wood doors in a wooden track (from rockler) to the front to hide some of the face. The bottom track is going to go in a dado in the bottom of the piece. So my question is:

How can I attach the top track to the bottom of the counter? I havent picked it out so I dont know if is stone or composite. If it is stone can I glue and clamp or is this bad news?

note about the photo; I know that the pulls are in the wrong spot, I was mid model – same goes for the other obviously goofy things like the wierd sink.

You can set the top on piece of plywood cut to recess into the frame. Or you can epoxy to the top.
