Does the pocket door hardware you have have a weight rating because both of your methods will result in an extremely heavy door at 48” wide, most of those kits are made for a max of 36” or for 48” a 2 door split. A solid door is going to be much lighter easier to build and less troublesome than the plywood door that has been trimmed out. Since you mentioned that you have never made a door before a good material to pratice with is 2x’s as they are inexpensive and already the right thickness and if your anything like me will destroy at first couple attempts. For these the freud door set for the router is pretty easy to learn with.
