I’m finishing a basement and installing a pocket door, it’s an odd size. I was thinking of cutting down a luan or manufactured 6 panel door, but don’t like the look. I’m looking for soemone in Staten Is,NY or Central NJ who might manufacture something like this. It’s for a laundry room so it will not be premium wood maybe pine and paint it white. The size of the door is 36W x 74H. Any help would be great.

Thanks Tom

A custom door will likely cost you more than it’s worth, plus no matter what you do, it’s still going to look odd for being short. I’ve cut down a standard box-store solid wood 6 panel door down to 72” for an odd doorway in my house. It held together well, and I don’t think it looks too out of place amongst regular height 6 panel doors.

I would go to a salvage yard that specializes in recycling vintage home interiors. I have found some incredible things. I now mine has doors of all shapes and sizes. You will be amazed at what ideas you can get from going to one of those places.
