As with wood doors the carcass sides should be grooved to form a dust seal, while the actual gap between the doors can be closed with an available bristle fitting as shown in 236:8, 8A. The bristle assembly clips over the edge of the glass and requires no other fixing. The impact of a free-running glass door against the sides of a carcass can be fairly considerable, and the grooves should be lined with velvet, or small felt, leather or rubber buffers can be fitted to absorb the shock.
It should be stressed that, as with all types of flush sliding door, if the carcass is made up of laminboard, particle board, etc., the hardwood covered edges should be wide enough to accommodate all the groovings, or the ragged core will be visible when the doors are slid open. This hardly matters if the grooves are cased in, but in any case the tongues of the edgings should be placed well away from the grooving, and care in laying out will be amply repaid.

Ever wondered what wood turning is all about? Here are some invaluable information on how to make beautiful items out of wood! That one little strategy from A Course In Wood Turning that I implemented not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. I had never seen anything like it! Now, keep in mind that I had tried a lot of other products up until this point. You name it, I probably tried it! That’s how desperate I was to improve my skills with wood turning.
