Thanks pantsboy. From the best I can tell these would be for like a roll top desk with segmented door(the proper term has left me). My door will be solid. It will swing up and then slide straight back into cabinet. Like doors on an entertainment center that when closed hide the television but when opened slide back into cabinet revealing the tv. Except this will be horizontal instead of vertical.

Tabletop,

I think I understand your project; if I do it sounds similar the operation of a doors on a barrister bookcase. A Google search for barrister bookcase hardware will reveal a few hardware sources. Here is one example from such a search, sold on Amazon.

Thanks MrRon, tambour door is what I was trying to think of earlier. Those won’t work on this.
GR8Hunter thanks for the link, those are an option. When you search flipper doors or barrister(JBrow) it gives a lot of options. I just didn’t know what I was looking for but now I do. Thanks again
