Sliding barn door made from Black Walnut

 The search always starts at the Sawmill for me. Here you can see a fairly large amount of Black Walnut, all of which is from Coventry RI. The barn door was made from two large boards on the far left. We resawed one of the boards down to 3/4", which became the panel. The other board was ripped down the middle and cut into 4 separate sections to make the frame of the door.

 By using the Festool track and router we are able to safely and accurately cut tight fitting panels.

 Once everything is resawed, milled down to size, and square we are ready to glue everything together.

 Here is a photo of the door installed. We used a black walnut header which we mounted the rail to. This gave us the structure and the style that we were looking for.

 This hardware was purchased by the customer from http://www.realslidinghardware.com and their are many options to choose from. I found that these wheels were very quiet and would work well in many homes.

A special thanks to Nico over at www.thenicoworkshop.com for his help on this project as well! I may be big and strong but I cant do everything alone:)
