Custom Barn Doors for a customers new Garage.
Made from Home Depot Cedar 2×6’s
Mortise and Tenon joinery.
Salvaged windows
Crown Industrial Hardware (awesome quality)
Stripping windows and reglazing was the hardest part. 6 layers of paint (white, green, red, black, white again and poly under all that!) Not fun.

These doors are as sharp as a tack. Nice work.

So how much clamping pressure is your dog rated for?

Nice looking doors.

Great doors, nice to see your buddy approves. Sometimes my lab is so full of sawdust I have to vacuum her before going in and messing up Blondies clean house. LOL

The two doors on the outside do not open. Both center doors open on the track on top and open to a comfortable 60 inches. Thanks for the praise, anyone here could whip these out with a dado blade, table saw and a ridgeback dog. I guess glue and clamps would help too.
