I did these doors for a restaurant . The hardware is from Real Sliding Hardware , it’s not cheap but man is it smooth and heavy duty . I did a mock up of the divided lights in tape first to see how it looked and worked out . They originally wanted a 2×2 design but it didn’t look right so I made the 2×2 on card board and had it layer over this 3×3 . The client saw her design first (2×2) then I showed her my version and she liked that better . The grooves were done with my festool router using festool tracks , that worked great . The door is made up from 1x clear pine sandwiching 3/4 birch ply . The show edge of the doors are mitered with 1x mitered to match to give the illusion of a solid door .

Very nicely done. Is there an opening behind the doors or are they just for looks?

Great job on those gorgeous barn doors. They complement the place and make the restaurant more attractive and interesting.
