I sandwiched a 1/2” MDF core between a back of maple plywood and a front of maple and walnut chevrons that I re-sawed from 3/4” into 3 thin laminates from each board. The whole thing hangs from some stainless steel rollers that are super quiet. These photos don’t show but there is a small double roller at the base to keep it from swinging. Wife still has not picked out handle for the door yet.

Barn door? I think I have seen something like this in the modern art gallery :)

Cleanly resawing the 3/4” stock was really the hardest part of this, that and surface clamping each of those chevrons across the surface of the door. had to glue up one row at a time to ensure nothing shifted. If I had it to do over I would probably have sourced some 1/8” thick stock for the chevrons and skipped the resawing, as my resawn parts ended up thin enough to want to curl some so that made for more work in clamping during glue-up.
