Bifold Closet Doors

When we built our home, we framed out closets which were not a standard size. We couldn’t purchase custom-sized doors to match our six-panel doors so I finally managed to build them. The closet openings are approximately 42” x 80”.

All the oak was cut and milled off our land and air-dried.

I recessed the barrel of the hinge to avoid the otherwise large gap the hinge creates. [I’m sorry that I can’t post a photo here to show how I did it.]

I always finish raised panels separately to avoid problems with potential shrinkage during seasonal changes. [No photos here either.]

The door levers match those of the other hardware in our home.
[And no close-up of the hardware. You’ll have to use your imagination!]

Thanks, Jim. Not perfect, but actually better than I anticipated.

I see what you did with the stiles. Very creative. The balance the presentation. Good job! 👍
