Good eye JJ – that Craftsman drill press was my Dad’s and I’m guessing that it’s 60 years old. I “visited” your shop and am impressed with your hand tool set up. Nice!

The front porch looks fantastic. Did you buy a sliding door hardware kit or put the pieces together yourself?

I have been looking at some unistrut parts, but cannot find the final plates to attach the slabs to the bearings in the track. All of the hardware kits I have seen are in the $150 and up range, and I am on the cheap right now.

Thanks magaoiton,
I bought a hardware kit from a NH barn building company. It was 3 years ago and might have cost $150 but I think maybe a bit less. But having them work easily was important for me because I open and close them several times a day. Good luck with your door project!

Love the porch, I had considered placing one on my new shop 16×16, still have the option, but no decision, just love the extra space it provides, wonderful idea.
