Maple Barn Door with chevron pattern. I resawed 4/4 stock to make the 1/4” center panels. Door is finished with Rubio monocoat. Thanks for looking

nice door,

I am confused about it’s placement, the pics show it covering an alcove with 2 doors 90 to each other,
then a pic from a bathroom and only one door in view.

looks like 2 different location… confusing.

The door leads into a garden style bathroom meaning there are double sinks when you first go in then a door leading to a toilet and shower and tub. The doors inside to the left are a bifold closet. The room was originally the first floor master. This is a rental property and we turned the master into a den, the chairs face a flat screen tv. We thought it would be nice to give some extra privacy to the bathroom area if people were hanging out and someone wanted to get a shower.

Cool looking door. That’s a lot of saw work, well done . . .

if you think of it as a bunch of boards tongue and grooved together, you either spot glue them together, or tape them together, and then cut them on the bias to create the panels, it’s not so bad… but if you do them individually it is a lot of fiddling.

I’m actively seeking a new house just so it has an opening where I can build and mount a sliding door like this.
Very Attractive. Well done.

There probably is a better way but I resawed and mitered each panel individual plus cut opposing rabbets on each edge to create a ship lap joint between panels and allow for movement. Thanks for the comments

I made a set of doors alot like yours for my garage. I had a bunch of 1/2” stock but had to cut all the shiplap cuts. So glad I did. I have a south facing door and the sun and rain and cold do a job on those doors. they move all over the place but still hold their seal.
I attached the frame with Kreg screws after my dowel attempt was lacking. The Kreg system really made it easy and square and solid. . . Just sayin’...
