Looking for custom sliding glass doors for cabinet


I am finally building the interior of this wine-bar-liquor cabinet-thing. I thought I had found a good source for custom sliding glass doors (made to order via the web) but cannot find them now.



In my mind, I'm thinking something that functions like shower doors but with the finish/quality of a stereo cabinet. Aluminum or wood tracks that can be cut to length or ordered in custom length.

I searched the forum and found a suggestion for rockler.com and I'm looking at their site.

Any other suggestions? Opening is about 34" wide by 46" high.

Might try a local glass company who may be able to make what you need or get the parts from Rocker etc and the glass from local supplier.

I should think a glass company would have no trouble helping you. You might also check with an art glass company that does stained glass, etched glass, etc. work if the mainstream glass company cannot help you.

Yes.....local glass company....

We have one about 2 miles from us...mom and pop place....

About 3 years ago I made a 'window' for a bay window on the garae 2nd story...basically a double bi-fold....each panel was 12x48"....had them make me 4 glass panes...tempered....I think the total cost was around $60.

Click on the link in my sig if you want to see a pic of it....

As soon as I get ready to do the showers....I'll have them do the glass doors and surrounds....their cost will be about 1/3 or retail.
