    Saw this just now on your IG, had to thank you so much for sharing the details of how it came together. The timeliness of this is perfect, as a door similar to yours is exactly what I had been planning to make for my laundry room. I had initially planned to use a century old door that was once my dear grandparent’s front door, but it was just shy of being wide enough. Again, thank you so much for sharing your work. It’s always helpful and inspiring!

    This is gorgeous!! We have pocket doors all in our 1973 home. Some are now dropping due to heavy use. How do we fix them? Take trim off and door will come out?? Love your Instagram!

    It would be helpful to understand when a pocket door will work and/or what does the inside look like? How is it hung? What needs to be done to the door to hang it? does it go into the vanity of the wall or lay outside of the wall like a barn door?

      Hi! The purpose of this tutorial was to share how to build a slab door if someone wanted to have a custom look or size for a specific need -whether for a barn door or a pocket door!

    This is amazing. I love it and would love to be able to recreate it. I have a couple of questions. First, did you use a router to fit both the glass and the solid panel? Second, how did you join the two doors together? I’m assuming wood glue but also nails? Screws? Looking forward to your response.

      Hi! I covered in the tutorial – I only used wood glue and clamps. I installed the door stop on one side then the glass then the door stop on the other side to sandwich it in.
