This last summer I made a sliding barn door to give me a way to close off my laundry room when I wanted to. I made the door from a sheet of 1/2” exterior siding then added 1/2” wood as decorative trim. It’s massive in person and really adds a cool focal point in my kitchen.
I made the sliding hardware from flat bar steel, idler pulley wheels, and some basic hardware. I threw on a small 1” right angle bracket with a piece of rubber glued on it to create a stop so it won’t roll off track.
Instructions are posted on my blog here if you would like to check out the step by step details of the build.
