All exposed wood is 'repurposed' from old beam taken from tobacco warehouse. All hardware for hanging doors made from 1 1/2" aluminum bar stock. Wheels are the wheels from laundry line pulley. All repurposed wood came from a 6" X 8" X 13' heart pine beam. The sliding doors are solid repurposed wood and cabinet body is 1/4" veneer boards milled and planed from beam and glued and staples to pine frame. All materials except the wood beam came from local Home Depot.

    • Bikegiant1, Sorry but I built this from a picture my wife found in a magazine. I will get some measurements and some more pictures for you in a couple of days. Thanks for your comment.

    • Bikegiant, the center is 21 1/2" deep x 58" wide x 31" tall. The cabinet doors are 18" wide x 24" tall. All black hardware is made fro, 1 1/2" aluminum bar stock, bent and painted. What I would do different....I found the height is determined by the height of the sliding doors since you must allow for the doors plus the hardware. To make the hardware that hangs the doors, I tried to put 2 90 degree bends but kept braking the bar. My solution was two pieces, the one in front that attaches to the door and one in the back that the bolt feeds into. The two pieces are pop riveted at the top. The wheels are from a laundry line pulley and I used several washers to get them to run true. It does not show in the pictures but I saved the glass door from the old cheap TV stand and installed it in the center. I have taken some close-up pictures of the hardware but can't figure out how to upload them. Hope this helps.
