Just a quick shot of a set of sliding by-pass doors I built. I just ripped a 1/4” dado down the appropriate edges and put tenons on the cross pieces. For the panels I ended up using some thin decorative T&G strips (same as the wall). They are sold as B grade, but few are that good, but, at about $6 for 10 sq. ft. it works. Unfortunately, they are a bit thinner than the goove that I had already put in, assuming I was going to buy 1/4” sheet stock for the panels. For “barrel spacers” I used some cut up drinking straws as spacers for the panels. The frames were milled up from pine “barn board”, that is inexpensive too ( 71 cents / bd ft). I just spend some time with the jointer/planer/tablesaw etc., save money, and enjoy the process of milling it myself. It will take a bit of time for the colour yellow to the same hue as the wall. I am pleased with them and they are a prototype for a couple more sets and some kitchen cabinet doors for a friend.
