Sliding barn door
« on: May 30, 2017, 08:52 PM »
Hey guys, 

I am in the process of building this barn door and I am looking for some input on how to put the door together.   Currently I plan on using tongue and groove between all the vertical boards. For the top and bottom I am thinking a 3" deep mortise with matching tenon on each end of the vertical boards.   From there i was thinking doweling through the tenon. 

Does this design accommodate movement?  Does the ends get glued or just at the dowel? 

Thanks in advance
