I got really sick of looking at the crappy old bifold doors that used to hide my washer room so i designed and built this set of hickory doors. All the boards were resawn on my bandsaw, flipped end for end then reglued up in an attempt to prevent any warping. the interior panels are all free floating and the vertical and horizontal beams are glued and lag screwed together. This was my first attempt at doors of any kind so there was a learning curve to it but i am very pleased with how they turned out. the door on the right has pins that slide down into the floor and up into the door frame to secure it in place so the left door can latch securely to it.

I agree with you. I rarely put bi-fold doors in a house. I just never liked them. Your doors look great!
