This 7′ x 7′ Sliding Barn Door is made from fifty year-old cedar planks and salvaged old growth fir 2x4s from back when they were actually two inches by four inches. The 16′ headboard is also made from vintage fir studs. Door features two vintage leaded glass windows, 1′ x 6′ and is mounted on a double-length rail with slow-close hardware at each end. Sixteen 1/2″ steel dowels hold the whole thing together.
This one tooks me months to build. The windows, at 1/4″ thick, were too fragile to use for the milling and fitting process, so I had to make proxies out of plywood. The whole thing was so big it had to be assembled not only onsite, but on the mezzanine where it lives.
