Have not heard of f channel before. I'm sure that letter refers to the profile. Where is F predominantly used? Or is that the word you were using while trying to work with it :-)

I guess you would call it a bulk head wall moulding. Used to fasten the 1/4 inch plywood to the inside skin of the trailer...YES I DID use the F word..only once!

Called F channel because it looks like it...same as C or U channel.

Dan, that F channel seems about half tempered. I had a heck of a time, not only bending it but keeping it on the template while bending. I see you used stop blocks which sure makes it a bit easier. On the edge toward the inside of the cabinet, I drilled a few holes in the channel and placed a 3/8Ē pan head screw just to hold things until against the wall. May not be able to do that with 1/4Ē ply. I used 3/8Ē that I ran a dado along the edge to get the channel to fit.
Also, donít know if I sent you the type of barn door hardware I used for the rolling bath door. We bought the hardware from The Hardware Hut. Itís adjustable. Take care
