I have built a man cave in my basement. I would like to build french door bookcase to fit in door opening. The finished wall thickness is 8 1/4". The opening itself is 46 3/4" wide, and 78 1/4" tall. I would like the bookcase depth and back to equal the finished wall thickness so it looks ok in the room on the backside when the doors are closed.
I am very handy with woodwork.
I do not want it to be an obvious door, so i was thinking trim on either side of the opening would overhang slightly to hide the bookcase sides when the door is closed. And, I was thinking there would be a center rail which would be attached to one side of the case. It would act as a stop, and also cove the split when the doors are fully closed.
I am not sure how to figure the appropriate gap around each case to allow for appropriate hidden hardware, and to prevent the cases from rubbing or jamming when operating the doors.
The finished unit would be flush to wall on the entrance side, then trimmed as noted above.
