Pantry Barn Door
Finally we were able to make the barn doors for the pantry we built...
still have trim to do and adding the clavos,the handles,floor guides and carriage hooks
1st we pre-measured and cut all the pieces using 1"x 4"..cutting the length to 74 1/2"
since it was raining and cold outside we had to construct in our living room... we laid the boards out and put the header on.
we pre-drilled each board to prevent splitting...then screwed them together with 1 1/4" screws
center brace and bottom piece attached the same way...
we then drilled the holes needed for the barn door hanging hardware...
we attached the bolts and hung the 1st door...
same process for the 2nd door....pre-drill and then screwing the boards together
and then we hung the second door
Finally we have both doors done and up
Side pieces going in....each side has a 2"x6"@8'long
We predrilled 9 holes spaced 9&1/8th inch apart for the clavos which then got a touch of gorilla glue to ensure they stay in.
Again each area is measured on the other trim piece
The doors were also given additional trim on outer edges with 1"x4" boards cut to fit between top and center pieces and also center and bottom piece.
Once all was done I applied a clear water resistant sealer
Then we measured to put the 6 remaining clavos on the center pieces of the door
- Boards (already had)
- Screws (already had)
- Barn door hardware (already had)
