Default Custom Closet Doors

In recent weeks I have gutted the top floor of our house down to the studs, aside from installing new everything wife wanted a sliding closet at the top of the stairs, problem is there was only 74" clearance at the proper depth. There are many option for this style of closet door but they are 80" tall and buying them and cutting them was out of the question. So I made my own closet doors, here is a picture of dry fitting them before they get stained. Second picture is showing more of the finished door with white glass inserts and where the handle will be....

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

You made that look easy. Nicely done.

Nicely done Tony.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
