Subject:
Fall Front Door

CJ in MPLS
Hey all.

I am working on a fall front door design for a coin chest. The door will fold down and slide under a bank of drawers in the same way that a some Gerstner tool chests do. I've purchased a set of the hardware that the Gerstner folks use on their fall front doors and I can replicate that for the cabinet without too much issue.

Since I don't have a Gerstner tool chest with a fall front door, can any of you that do have one tell me how much clearance there exists on each side of the fall front door? Also, can anyone tell me how thick those doors are? I would like to use relatively thin stock, but too thin and I'll have problems with warping and door pins breaking out.

Thanks,

CJ
