Looking for any drawbacks before I start building and find one when it's to late.

I suggest steel or aluminum for frame and legs vs. wood

Yea kinda. Work sent me out of town for a couple months so im only home couple times a month to work on it.

I have everything worked out except the front. I cant do one giant door since the weight would tear out the hinges in time and two doors would leave an edge down the center. Not sure how to have everything accessible but look good when closed.

Frame out the doors with molding, cut the middle piece so when the doors are shut it lays dead center covering that gap and finishing the look of the rest of the molding. Almost like a squared, sideways number 8

If you have the two doors you could get one fancy looking frame piece to surround the doors and create a line down the middle. Attach half the frame peice to one side of the door and leave the other half overhanging so it covers the gap between the doors.
