Topic tags/keywords: design door front stealth project

I’ve seen tables & boxes where the front panel flips up (at the top) then slides into a slot where it’s hidden except for its bottom edge. Can anyone tell me how that’s done? What does that mechanism look like? If you could provide me enough detail so that I can model it in Sketchup, I’d appreciate it. Thanks for your time and consideration!

Google some info on barrister bookcase projects. Many places sell the hardware (Rockler?) and there are videos/plans which describe the routing.
