Rolling Barn Door Cabinet

This is my version of the Barn Door Snack Cabinet. I made it for my shop/office and was just what I was looking for to add storage space. For the most part I used the published dimensions, but changed the construction method by notching the center divider and using a cutoff from the plywood panel as front and rear stretchers for attaching the top and the face frame. I also used nylon washers for the rollers to make the slide smoothly and quietly. I installed door stops to make sure the door wouldn't slide off the track, I added silicone door bumpers to the lower door guide to avoid wood to metal contact and finally, I ground a radius on the door straps to match the rollers.
Thanks Ana for the inspiration!
