Here’s a massive sliding barn door I recently made for a customer. This thing weighs about 400-500 lbs. and is made of steel, birch plywood, and grey hemlock siding from our lot. It measures 64” wide and 105” tall and slides over into a recess the customer had built into the room. We sprayed the door with lacquer. I made a guide from black phenolic that sits on the ground and is mostly hidden from view. I used an antique cast iron “snowbird” for the door handle. We make all of our own hardware as well. These are becoming more and more popular with our customers. Any questions are welcome.
