We were wanting to close off our dining room from our dog and baby. The answer was a sliding barn style door. To make my life easy, I chose a piece of 3/4” plywood and routed grooves into it to look like panels. The result looks great. I put a small chamfer on each of the edge pieces (whatever you call them) to soften it a bit and compensate for any imperfect cuts. My wife loves it.

Looks great ! The little black scrolls in the corners of the door frame is a nice touch.

Thanks Marcus,

I actually recycled hardware from a real barn door that came down. It was free and functional. It’s regular square, galvanized barn door tube. You can buy it at any farm co-op or country hardware store.
