Thanks for all the kind remarks guys.  I've picked up a lot of tricks of the trade because of this forum and thanks to the great Festool products it has allowed me to save a ton of time (TS75, Domino XL700!).  As a side business (primary employment is police work) Festool and this forum has allowed my side business to flourish quite nicely.

Very nice work. If this is something you love? Be careful the side business will soon become your only business and you will not have to work a day in your life. Some of us our lucky and get to do what we do for a living and are paid well for it.

Very nice work.  I have a couple of questions for you if I may ask. How much larger do you build the sliding doors compared to the opening size?   Is there a standard that you follow for sizing the doors width and height in comparison to the opening?

Thank you

TXFIVEO

thank you for the info.  Hopefully this yr some time I'll be doing a remodeling of a few rooms and I believe I'll be building a few sets of doors.   Have you used Rustica Hardware for any of your hardware?   They seem to have a wide range of choices.  I've not looked anywhere else, I know their products from their never ending emails.  They do seem to be quality hardware

Thanks again

Nice work!  Really like the look of barn doors!

I see the clips on the outside of the doors at the floor.  I assume you have some kind of spacer against the wall to prevent them from brushing the wall or door frame?  Are those metal with a plastic protector?  Just thinking about protecting the finish from opening and closing.

I'm also curious about these kinds of doors with kids who might open or close them too quickly and whether you've ever had them come off the track.

Thanks for sharing!

@neilc The hardware I've used (Custom Service Hardware in WI) include stops that are installed after the door is installed to limit the travel range of the door  Their website has some videos detailing the recommended installation steps.

Title: Re: H&K Custom Barn Doors
Post by: TXFIVEO on April 03, 2017, 09:48 AM
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.

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?
Title: Re: H&K Custom Barn Doors
Post by: TXFIVEO on June 18, 2017, 09:16 PM
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.

Glass doors in progress...

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. 
Title: Re: H&K Custom Barn Doors
Post by: rst on July 06, 2017, 04:27 PM
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.

When I got  mustered out of the army, I happened to be in a neighboring town in an area I had been familiar with a couple of years previously, before my 2 years vacation paid for by my "friends and neighbors."  Things had changed in those two years.  I happened to turn onto a street I had traveled many times in the  past, only this time, it was ONE WAY in the opposite direction  I was traveling.  At the end of the street the traffic light turned red and so I stopped.  There happened to be a police officer standing at the corner.  While I was stopped, the officer strolled over to my car and asked, very casually, "Would you like to buy a couple of tickets to the Policemen's ball?"  "Yes Sir.  And how much are they?"

Sorry for my late reply.  I mainly use dominos now for all my door builds.  I use the monster 14x140 for the stiles/rails and 8x50 for the “back portion” of the door.  The dominos make for perfect alignment and strong joints.  And fast, without compromising build quality.  Very impressive tool.  I WILL NOT be without it for my builds!

@TXFIVEO your work is terrific.  I have viewed this thread many times and it seems each time I do I see something new that I like.  I think it’s great you take the time to share and inspire.

Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing.

Thank you so much for the kind words.  It is greatly appreciated.  What started as a project with my wife for our study turned into a nice side business. I am very grateful to this site.  I have learned a lot about carpentry and Festool.  A perfect combo.   [big grin]

Your imagination seems to never end. Nearly every door (How many are there now? a few hundred?;-)  I have never counted) is different. i especially like the reclaimed wood doors.  Even those go beyond the differences in wood from one piece to another, but you manage to change the patterns of assembly as well.

TX..
did you burn the wood with a torch?
Title: Re: H&K Custom Barn Doors
Post by: Tinker on February 25, 2018, 11:56 AM
NAH! He's a police officer. He gets to fires first, sets up so he can grab burnt pieces of wood, toss into his cruiser, goes home and whips off a door or two with the loot.

Funny story about work...I got into a foot chase with a theft suspect and came across a barn that was hidden by large trees. Barn was in rough shape and spoke to the owner about it...working out some details with it.   [big grin]

I am amazed by your work  [eek] and also about those doors demand. Who knew about such a market  [scared]

Can you have a picture from the inside when the door is close? They look very nice open or close from one side, I am wondering how they look from the other side..

Where you getting your reclaimed lumber?

Have a source that travels the country taking down old barns and buildings.  The wood is meticulously removed with all nails removed  and then put in a kiln for several days.   Then I transform it to whatever the customer wants.

FWIW...saw this from TruStyle today...a nice door and a different color, rather interesting.

I also like the low profile door hardware that doesn't distract from the door itself. It allows the focus to be on the door.

Post by: TXFIVEO on June 21, 2018, 08:44 AM
Yeah, I have done NUMEROUS doors with that style hardware. Most clients want a little more attention on the hardware and feel the “true barn door style” has more pronounced hangers.  To each their own. Here are just a couple of doors I have built and installed over the last two years using the top mount hardware...

Post by: pixelated on July 09, 2018, 08:54 AM
I have a question;
Is it feasible to build a barn door style door that has some degree of air sealing? Such as between an unheated space and heated (or cooled) space. We have an enclosed, unheated porch and would like to replace the existing French doors between the porch and the interior of the house. Space is a premium, so the notion a door that doesn't have to swing is very attractive.

Thanks
