The trim on the right side of the shelf-door should be fixed to the fixed shelf, while the left side moves with the door. Bevel notches in the trim on the right if the horizontal trim dives under it as the door opens. If necessary, slightly round the horizontal pieces to slip underneath smoothly. 5. Install a wooden door stop. This should serve two functions: Hit the steel to keep the door from closing too far, and hold the door so that it doesn't float open.

When you have successfully fitted the top piece, repeat this process for the two remaining sides of the doorstop.
