My wife has a quilting machine that makes a lot of noise. Decided I needed to reduce the noise. Made this door out of mostly Mahogany. Also made the leaded glass.

Wow, that is beautiful, I had to show my wife. I bet we will have something similar, sooner than later. I usually see this type of door made solid and they look so heavy. This open design makes it look much lighter and classy. Great job.

Thanks for the nice comments.

This door has a plywood core and 1/4” mahogany face. It’s 8.5’ by 4.7’ x 1.75” thick. I think the door weighs around 160 lbs.

The floor is tile and the wood it’s supposed to resemble is acacia.

I LOVE it! Most sliding barn doors do not seem to fit the space because they are too weathered and rustic for modern homes, but this would look great anywhere. Thanks for sharing.
