I want to build a cabinet for my wife to display/use her mother’s fine china. We have a relatively small dining room so I want to use sliding, glass panel doors instead of hinges. Dimensions are going to be roughly 50” W x 60” H x 16” D. Two side by side drawers at bottom for table cloths, place mats etc. Side panels are going to be wood (not glass). I was hoping to use one single pane of glass for each door and install a removable lattice frame held in place with bullet fasteners. Wood to be maple or red oak. Just wondering if anyone has plans for something like this of has made something similar and has some suggestions to get me started??? Have included a pic of one that a friend has that my wife likes. Comments & suggestions welcome. Cheers, Thinkerf
