Snowstorm Jonas kept me hunkered down all weekend with plenty of time to make proper plans for the sliding barn door console. I’ve been meaning to tackle for quite some time, I think it’s been two years since I built it so my apologies for taking forever 🙂
Build a sliding barn door console using my step by step free plans. This is a knock off of the Yorkville Sliding Door Console from Sundance Catalog.
Thank you to everyone who has shown so much interest in the original console post where I shared cut lists and basic construction process. Your interest and questions spurred me on to make proper plans down below.
You may recall I built this console for week one of the Creating With the Stars series in the Spring of 2014:
Week one of the contest was a ‘knock off’ theme and I was inspired by Sundance Catalog’s Yorkville Sliding Door Console:
The retail version above sells for $2800 plus shipping – yikes! I’m sharing the plans to make your own DIY version for $300.
The barn door hardware is fairly simple pieces you can find at any big home improvement store – aluminum bars with 1 1/2″ pulley wheels. For more details on the hardware portion see my original post here.
Below you will find the step by step instructions and a few actual process photos to build this console. Please follow all safety precautions when using power tools.
For the barn door hardware details visit my original post here.
To build this console I used my Kreg rip cut.
Build the carcass first and double check your measurements.
Install the shelves as you desire or you can make the shelves adjustable using the shelf pin jig.
Attach door hardware tracks as indicated. For more information on hardware details see my original post here.
Finish as desired. I choose to paint the face frame in white high gloss enamel and stain the remaining parts.
Thank you for visiting. Any comments or questions please leave below.
