Cabinate door front slide?

I have a 36 inch Kit cabinet. I would like to make one door currently a full overlay door with European hinges into a sliding door front.
In other words it would pull out on some type of slide with a shelf/drawer. I also want two shelves/drawers, one would open with door front and second would be opened after.
Any thoughts, suggestions, proper search terms. JIm 0311

I know this link isn't what you want but thought maybe the picture would give you an idea of how to do what you want. I know how I would do it but can't put it into words that would make sense.

Thanks for the response. I know the feeling of putting something into words.

I saw something similar to your link, only the drawer slides were on the bottom. In the pic there are angle braces attached from the slides to the door front. It appears that type of support would be needed. Is there somewhere that type of hardware can be purchased for a reasonable amount of money?

What I think I would do to achieve what you want is to build a tall bottom drawer, say 6"s tall and mount the door to that then put a pullout above that.

The 6" drawer would be tall enough and stable enough to support and stiffen the door without any other brackets or braces.

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

What Dave described works very well. In the picture below, the second from right base cabinet door is our dogfood drawer. The actual drawer is about 10" high, and the door is a full door (drawer front). The drawer holds two 40 LB bags of dog food. Sorry about the quality of the picture as it was taken about 10 years ago with a 35mm and available light. No problems with it.
