Sliding Door Wall Shelf
A sleek design with lots of handy storage makes this project a great home accent.
This shelf adds storage space to any home and doesn’t take up valuable floor space. It hangs on the wall, so you can place it over a desk or buffet. And that gives you more room to stash books or other items. As you can see in the photos, this shelf has sliding glass doors that add to the overall design. The frosted-glass doors slide in a track and conceal the clutter. You’d think that building a sturdy wall shelf would require a lot of complicated joinery. But that’s not the case. We used Minifix fasteners. The two-part fasteners draw the workpieces together and hold them firmly. This means you can simply cut the pieces to size and not worry about cutting a lot of complicated joinery to assemble the project.

Lighted Display Cabinet
Stylish glass doors and interior lighting put the contents on display, but the design and construction of this cabinet hold a few surprises.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
