Snowstorm Jonas kept me hunkered down all weekend with plenty of time to make proper plans for the sliding barn door console.
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 the basic construction process. It’s because of your interest and questions which spurred me on to make proper plans down below.
Awhile back 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 (no longer available).
The retail version above used to sell for $2800 plus shipping! But I’m sharing the plans down below to make your own DIY version for about $300.
This sliding barn door console has it all:
- open access shelf style storage
- two sliding doors for hidden storage
- large open serving space
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 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.
Start with building the carcass first and double check your measurements.
Next install the shelves as you desire or you can make the shelves adjustable using the shelf pin jig.
Lastly attach the 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. I appreciate all the comments and if you have any questions please leave them down below.
