Barn door garage roll up

Project by RJ2 posted 02-13-2016 01:02 PM 24534 views 3 times favorited 6 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Built a new barn door skin for the roll up Clopay stamped metal 7X10 garage door .
Did it about 6 months ago , f

inally finished with a couple coats of Spar minwax.
Had to order beefier springs , for the extra 150 lbs, I made it to match the front door , done with 4X14
Cedar and African Mahogany. Real happy with the outcome , very quiet ,smooth
And with the Liftmaster phone app and the new belt drive , cannot hear it opening through the second floor system anymore.

That’s a gorgeous door! You’d hardly think that it was a storage barn that was behind it though! It’s quite opulent and sturdy looking and wouldn’t be out of place at a castle of something. Totally impressed that you built this on your own!

Very nice job. The weight alone would have given me caution for a do it yourselfer. Looks Beefy!

I personally just want to see this door in action. It looks really heavy and solid so I can’t imagine that it would easy to motorize at all…

I think your article mentioned a certain aspect of the problem. I think it has a lot more to study than that. vex 2
