Cabinet w sliding doors

This is a great cabinet, because it has many
different functions. The upper shelves can hold books and other decorative
objects, while you can hide almost anything in the sliding cabinets below.
The construction of this piece is actually quite easy. The shelf, floor,
top, and track strip are all nailed to the ends with finishing nails. Be
sure to separate the two tracks for the sliding doors 1/8 in. and place
a groove in the bottom of the shelf. Also place a groove into the track
strip.

In order to nail the back without any edges
showing, be sure to rabbet the back edges of the ends and top. You can
buy legs all ready made at almost any home furnishings store. You should
invest in legs that have nylon feet for easy sliding.
