Here they are--the long awaited sliding barn doors, yep these are the ones I have been talking about for months on "The Crafted Podcast".

First off Happy St. Patricks day! 
This Irish banner / flag  may very well be my favorite build yet--I got to really work on developing a lot of new skills here, namely scroll work, forging vines, leafs, etc., and It just so happens that my buddy Jason owns Flanagan's Irish Pub in Dunedin, so I knew just the right place for it!

Wooden State Cutout (Florida) | DIY

Still trying to work my way through my pile of scrap wood.

 If I had to do it again I would recommend the thinnest plywood you can get for aesthetic reasons--or better yet(if your boards are thick enough), glue the boards together prior to cutting out your shape.

Thanks for watching!
