These sliding doors made a huge difference in being able to get the lawnmower out of the shed. The old doors had hinges and blocked the narrow walkway when they were open. I used outdoor torqx drive screws throughout. I routed edge joins on the boards and pocket screws to put the frame together. sherman williams finish.

I can see you solved that space problem nicely .
Just great looking doors and those TORX drive screws are just so superior to anything else .
I get my screws from work (PAM SCREWS ) and use them almost exclusively .
What kind of track and door seals did you use ?

Great solution, they should last for a long time.

Thanks for the kind comments. I had fun building them, and then when I raised the floor with concrete The doors were completely disassembled and rebuilt 3” shorter, easy to do when done with screws.

Those doors look great. The members on this site never cease to amaze. There is nothing like making something custom for your specific purpose.
