Sliding Door Console

12 Hours

This is one of my most recent projects, a beautiful console that I built for a customer. (I built it based loosely on these plans from

Having a little helper is the best!

The first thing I did was build two frames out of the 2x3's. And then added the side panels to the sides, using plywood. Then I glued and nailed down the face frame boards.

Then I laid down the bottom shelf boards on the bottom frame. The next step was to add in the middle shelf by placing it inside the console and then attach it from the outside to secure it in place.

My favorite aspect about this build is the mini hardware from amazon. It really fits nicely on the piece and doesn't over power the smaller doors.

Then I placed the backing on the console using plywood. The last piece to finish off the console was the top shelf.

Then I painted the console a white matte.

    Hi first time but I love this idea really but my question is do the doors bypass each other? Bending and reaching is not for me does it give a clear opening
