        Plans for sliding bedroom and bi-fold doors Sign In/Join 
        posted
        Hi All...does anyone have experience with construction of sliding and/or bi-fold doors? I gagged when I saw a local lumber yard's quote to make them so it looks like it's on me now. It "seems" like it would be pretty straight-forward, but this is uncharted territory. Looking for plans, how-to's, gotchas, etc to get me on my way. Plan is for simple wood shaker-style doors for 3 closets 1 set sliding, 2 sets bi-fold. I can provide some dimensions if this helps. Thanks in advance!

        make sure you use this stuff to put it together

        it's been in the bifold kits I've used and the best I have seen over my years as consumer, and the past 6 or so as serious DIY fixer. no sags or fails so far, and it's easy enough to understand and install.


        sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?

        I used the Johnson pocket door kit already. Very good instructions and easy to install. I've already looked these up. Thanks!
