Project Information

I had a neighbor contact me and they wanted to replace their boring plain white pocket door to their Master Bathroom and they had the idea of using a Barn Door for this space. I loved the idea and sold them on the combination of using Sapele with a Maple Frame. I constructed the door using simple tongue and groove joinery and used a Made In America hardware kit for hanging the door. It fit the space for this small door perfectly and really transformed the space from blah, to WOW! Let me know your thoughts, and if you would like to see the whole build process, you can check out the full build video here:

Jim, I tried but because the bedroom was so dark and there's a huge glass block window in the bathroom on the other side, it overexposed every picture i tried to take with it open, sorry…

The maple and sapele blend nicely.
I was thinking of making something similar for our kitchen pantry in the arts and crafts style.

I take it you didn't stain it. The natural wood looks so good.

You can't beat American make hardware.
