Title: Online caluclator for frame & panel sliding door available?
Post by: ChuckS on September 04, 2018, 12:14 PM
I am making a credenza with two sliding doors (running on upper and lower tracks). I would like to see k the advice of those who have built similar cabinets on these questions:

1) Does anyone know any online calculator that I can use to verify my own before I cut the stiles and rails? I found this for doors without the use of tracks: https://www.inchcalculator.com/cabinet-door-calculator/

2) Or if you have built sliding doors, do you have a good way of doing those calculations?

3) What the pros and cons of having stiles and rails of the same width vs narrower stiles and wider rails? I have seen both.
