Sliding Door

Project by JAGWAH posted 11-06-2013 03:33 PM 3012 views 0 times favorited 8 comments Add to Favorites Watch

After remodeling my kitchen I turned my attention on the new laundry area. I needed a non swinging door to hide the washer and dryer as well as mask some of the noise. As always I use SketchUp to help me work out the details.

I found some redwood at an estate sale several years ago and decided it would be excellent material to build an oldish looking barn door.

I intended it to slide by way of old barn door hardware but didn’t have the surface to support the open end of the track. I tend to use extension drawer glides in a lot of not intended ways and thought, why not! So I have a 28” 100# rated full extension glide mounted to the above cabinet. Surprisingly this works very well.

As a side note. The dryer cannot be fully removed without unplugging it, obviously. The only way to unplug it is laying over the top of the dryer. So since this cabinet would be in the way I made the bottom of the cabinet a drawer. With the door off and the drawer removed there is plenty of room to lay on top of the dryer and unplug it.

I thought the door creation and use of hardware might be something of interest.

Excellent use of Sketchup! Exactly as I use it for often. Lets you work creative ideas/concepts before plunging into the projects.

Thats a nice creative idea for your door problem.

Have you tried closet hardware store like Caldwells or Value Windows and doors, I am considering caldwells as I have seen this sample http://caldwells.com/sliding-closet-door-hardware for sliding closet doors, do you think I can modify that and add some sliding mechanism like those techniques offered in Value? Thanks.

That’s the coolest use of drawer glides I’ve ever seen. So does one glide actually support 100 pounds? Does the header seem to feel any strain when the door is open?

The drawing and information related to home kitchen remodeling found to be interesting and informative for me. I have a plan to rearrange my kitchen view and things out there and I think this will be helpful to me. Thank you and keep sharing your great works. selling credit card points
