    I”m building two barn doors for a customer . These will slide on an over head track . The upper section of the doors will have a mirror that will have a false grid to give a 3 over 3 look . I’ll post some pics of the finishing process and the final install of them if you guys are interested in seeing more let know .

    The doors measure 89×39 and 2 3/16″ thick , pretty big doors .

    Looks like a fun little project! When do the mirrors come into play?

    They will be the last thing I do after stain and finish are applied . They want antiqued mirrors , those things are pricey I don’t need anything happening to them .

    Looks great. Those seem to be the trend now, we just finished a house with a few in it last year.

    Are you going with a store bought track, or are you building it yourself?

    Thanks , yeah they seem to be popular for now .

    I’m going to make the track from flat bar stock but I’ll buy the rollers and hardware as a kit , not sure where from yet . I have a few feelers out I’ll see what comes of it . I did some a few years ago and used RealBarn doors hardware and tracks but their stuff isn’t cheap , its nice but not that nice if you know what I mean .

    Would like to see what you put together for the track/rollers when you get it done. I have a few projects that would benefit from a solution that works well and saves on project costs.

    Those look damn cool… What was the assembly procedure?
    M&T?
    Dominoes?
    Dowelling?

    Door looks great Jerry. I’d also be interested in the track system you devise for them.

    Good looking door. How about some info on how you assembled it? Looks like 3/4 ply with fir maybe?

    Great looking door, Jerry. Interested to see what you do for hardware.

    I did a small interior door a couple of months ago and ended up using barn door hardware from the local TSC. Way overkill for the little door I was hanging but it was a lot cheaper than the hardware from the regular household suppliers.
    It’s so fashionable now that price gouging is common.

    BE the change you want to see.

    They look great, can’t wait to see the finished product. Are you planning on staining them?

    I take it that they are looking for something rustic? Barn doors made from pine will certainly give that effect. What is the plan for the hardware?

    Nice doors Jerry. Make sure you post a picture of them finished and installed.

    Yes I use 3/4″ maple plywood with 3/4″ clear pine. Assembly is brads and glue nothing fancy. Below you can see how I miter the edges to hide the plywood core. I’ve been doing doors like this for over 3 years and had no problems

    I’ll be staining these doors .

    Antique mirrors are either old mirrors that have started to fade or they make them now a days to look old and faded .

    Well done on the doors!! Looking forward to seeing it come together!
