This is the finished entertainment stand I have been working on. We originally bought sliding barn door hardware to use to mount the doors on the stand, but it was for a full size door, so we returned it and I made it myself. The wife was a bit apprehensive, but I told her to trust me. It took a little bit of tinkering, but I finally got it. Of course there are quite a few imperfections, like the cross pieces in the door are slightly off, but it was a fun project and got me thinking about making stuff for some cash on the side (which led me to this forum). All in all it was a fun project and led me to thinking of how I can improve my skills.

VERY NICE, and thank you! We’re probably going use your idea for side storage in our dining room when we do our renovation. Living on a small farm, this style is a perfect match!

Sorry for the delay in response. All of it is in pine from Menards. The front facing 1×4s are the “Quality” style. They’re smoother and straighter, but cost a little more. Otherwise all the rest of it is standard construction lumber from Menards. I hope that helps!

-Thanks,
Trevor

Thank you! My wife actually found the plans on anawhite.com (or something to that effect, just search sliding barn door tv cabinet), but I modified them slightly to fit our area. If you do decide to go with the pre-fabricated barn door hardware, you’ll want to make sure the table-top is set to allow the room for that hardware. The main issue I ran into was the height of the sliding bar & door hardware was greater than 3 inches, which wouldn’t allow it to fit under the table top and above the door opening. If you make the table-tops overhang less, the hardware could stick up past it, or if you widened the top part of the door opening, you could fit it under the table top overhang.

-Thanks,
Trevor
