There are "stops" on the track that you set at desired locations to stop the travel of the door so no worries with them sliding off.  The bottom of the door has "stay rollers" to prevent door from swinging out and jumping off track.

Four doors painted.   Once paint is dry time to disassemble to install glass inserts then glue up all the dominos.  Lots of glass sliding doors ordered recently...

I see in the one picture of the painted doors stacked on the floor that you use a triangular item attached to the tops and bottoms.  May I ask what are they?

Nice. Do you remove the old door strike plate, door stop molding, infill the
hinge mortises and latch hole and then paint or is the client handling that?

Depends on the client. Some actually requested the entire door jamb removed and drywalled to remove any existence of a door jamb.   Others just paint over the hinge mortises.

Thank you Howard!  I have put your old Festool 1400 through its paces with zero issues.  Works like a champ!

Awesome craftsmanship.  The more I see your stuff the more I'd like to make my own.  Would you mind showing how the glass is retained in your doors?  Can it be replaced if it breaks without destroying the door?  I really like the look but I tend to worry my kids will find a way to test my creation's future serviceability if you know what I mean.  :)

Thank you for the kind words. In regards to the glass, I've installed it several ways.  For a "permanent" and much cleaner look a slot routed into the door frame with some silicone works quite well.  For a more "traditinal" look a rabbet is put on the frame with trim pieces holding the glass in place.  Glass is easily accessible in the event it needs replacement. 

Tempered glass is quite strong though.  Had a door standing up against my garage (not in the best angle) and as luck would have it...fell over.  I surely expected the glass was broken...but it didn't.  Large piece of Flemish glass about 6' tall and 3' wide...not a crack.

As I've been doing commercial glass for the last 37 years, I can attest to the toughness of tempered glass.  Tempering glass is similar to tempering and hardening metal.  The glass is heated to high temps and the cooling and time is regulated.  You can wack it with a hammer and it probably with not break, but hit it with something pointed and it will shatter into aquarium gravel, pieces still sharp by not life threatening if contacted.  We used to throw salvaged door glass down a stone embankment about 30' high and usually they would make it to the bottom with shattering.  I actually use a Starrett spring loaded center/marking punch to blow up tempered we put in our dumpster.

Thanks for that info.  Makes sense...I have broken a lot of car windows in my "daytime" job getting suspects out of cars.  Makes sense the same style tempered glass is so strong.
