I am building a curio cabinet that is approximately 42” wide and 67”tall and 18” deep. I would like the front to be a door that slides left or right. I don’t know where to get the slides. The one I saw looked similar to a drawer slide.

I think you are trying to do something like THIS and use drawer slides like THIS.

The problem is that they only slide one way and only are avilable max 32”. However HERE or HERE are two way slides.

Do you have a picture of what you are trying to duplicate, as it may give others info to help you.

You might try the local BORG for sliding glass door hardware. They should have what you want.

I build this sliding door cabinet about 8 years ago. I use 100 lbs rated kv slides. However my cabinet wasn’t 42’’ wide. I forget just how wide it was. Haven’t had a problem with it.
