These doors are a big improvement over the original boring bi-fold doors that used to adorn these closets. They are made from Rustic Hickory and are sealed with Black Walnut Danish Oil. They hang from a wall mounted double bypass track. A sliding dovetail keeps the rear door from tilting away from the wall and a floor mounted track prevents the front door from banging into the rear when the doors slide in bypass mode.

Beth,

Super nice doors. Thanks for the explanation of the track system. It makes a lot of sense.

I’m personally not too fond of the material used for the doors, but I love the double bypass track. This is a simple, and creative home improvement project that can be done by any homeowner without any need for heavy equipment. I would opt for a wood of different texture and colours just for it to complement the surrounding walls and stand out on its own as closet doors, instead of blending with the background. By the way, I see there’s a power point on the wall between the closet doors, it might get slightly messy if the doors slid open while it is in use.

It’s unique natural look and unique colors add up some impression of the interiors. Customizing such doors would be hard to do and perhaps you need more scrap woods to make at like that. I have seen some doors at http://caldwells.com/interior-doors/craftsman-doors I am thinking if I will buy or just reinvent my own using old woods I have in our garage.
