Ed: Nothing wrong. Just a series of short vids on this whole build. It does fade out at about 1:30.

Ddude: Brass? didn’t know they had the stuff. Probably the cloth mesh though. At HD they sell the rail/corner kits and all hardware to make them yourself. I’ll just make them to fit these doors.

Grizz: thanks, this is my first door project. I’m doing these short vids and posting them simply because as I tackle a new thing I like to keep it in perspective. I also find people who sometimes look at what I’ve done and give me hints regarding it.
