Well, that didn’t take long!!!

Client hung the doors the same day I delivered them to her. I’m going to get her to do more installations for me in the future.

This is the results of my previous project post.

Sawdust, they look great!

Question on those barn door tracks / hardware systems. They come with varying stand outs from the wall, yes? And need to be sized also to the thickness of door being hung? Did you install clips on the floor to keep door away from face trim?

I’m needing to construct an 8’ tall slider like what you’ve built, and I’m intimidated by the hardware. Any words of wisdom?

Sorry, Smitty. I didn’t install them. I just did the woodworking on this one. My client even picked the doors up out of my pick up when I was out of town on day trip for work. How good is that? I did have to load them by my 61 y.o. self.

Wow those really look stunning against the bead board and nice white trim.
Well done.

Nice doors! Are they reclaimed wood, or are they new wood? They look to have the saw marks of older wood…

BFamous,

The wood was milled by the Amish close to me. They use a big circular saw mill thus the marks on the wood. It is not “antique” but it is relatively old. It was milled 20 years ago and put up green in a barn as horse stalls. The owner is taking all the horse stalls out and selling the wood. It’s not been exposed to the weather or been in contact with the ground. It had a good bit of red sand on it because the barn had a red sand floor. I pressure washed the wood to get rid of the sand and stickered it for about a week to dry the surface water.

I made a ‘sanding level’ example board so my clients can choose the level of smoothness they want.

See about the build here. French Barn Doors
