It's a custom made bookcase with a piano hinge, so the depth is whatever you want to make it. I'd say the minimum would be 9" if you want to keep it a bookcase. This one happens to be 12" deep.

How many wheels have you used and are they heavy duty? Is the door about 30" wide?

As I recall there are two wheels opposite the hinge and they are not heavy duty. The piano hinge carries most of the weight. The door is 2'-6" wide.
