Stylish Sliding Door Cabinet
Little extras are fun to stumble upon... This cabinet provides that with a hidden area that gives you twice the shelf space.
When you walk into a room, you’ll notice this attractive shelving unit in the corner. While admiring the seamless joinery, you become aware that there’s more to this cabinet than meets the eye. Upon closer inspection, the front of the case appears to be two sections. As you pull on either end of the case front, the shelves glide apart, revealing a large space with a pleasant surprise. Hidden behind the sliding cases is a mini-bar, with two full-width shelves. One of the shelves is stationary to give the cabinet strength. The other is adjustable, letting you tailor the space the way you like. Between the two shelves is a slideout tray. Pulling it out you’ll see that it’s hinged and flips open, giving you an extra-wide surface to serve friends a favored drink. Beneath the adjustable shelf is a simple rack that offers ample storage for the wine of your choice. As you slide the tray away and draw the cabinet columns closed, don’t be intimidated by all the moving parts. All it takes is a set of full-extension drawer slides and a keyboard tray slide. As you’ll see, we’ve come up with some tricks that will make building this fun.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
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.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
