job presentation-need int.door pictures
Summer time and the living is easy!
Hope you’re all enjoying summer.
I made the short list for carpentry apprentice instructor at my local community college. My interview is next week and I have to present a lesson plan with power point. It’s going reasonably well but what I really need are non-copyrighted pictures of interior door installations of all kinds but especially pocket and bifold doors.
Sure would appreciate your help!
Best regards to all,
start-to-finish pics, or just pics of finished installs?
Started a closet build this afternoon, old home and it's going in the end of a hallway where an old wood-burning stove sat. Framed the RO and will be finishing the job tomorrow, hanging the rock, installing jambs and casing, then a bi-fold door. Be fun to take pics for ya.
So watch want?
Start to finish might be cool-I could pick and choose for my power point presentation.Thanks,silverJust unloaded 150 bales of hay;now off to install a 4' x 8'butcher block
counter and a copper countertop we finished in the shop today.Tomorrow start a hardwood floor and then I have to put my lesson plan/power point together. I really appreciate everyone's help and feedback. I feel special...many thanks!silver
eh, insomnia. How about a pic of the bottom of a pocket door? Gonna dig some more up, got plenty of pics on my comp, question is where I put em. One day I'm gonna organize my pics so I can find things, and maybe if I'm really ambitious I'll name them (gasp!) and put together a portfolio to show clients (double gasp!). Actually that sounds like a job for the wife. FWIW:
sure wish I could sleep, be time to get up soon. Pocket door pic
Do want pics of pocket doors done to industry standards, or would you like to see the ones in a new house I'm working on now? Bottom of header is 76"....
Industrial standards would be nice but I'm easy.thanks Snort 'ppreciate it silver
I had good intentions.
these must be hiden in the computer somewhere ... as they're digital ... and they're printed! Cept I can't find them ...
just got back from a presentation ... saw them in one of my books ...
thot I'd scan them when I got home ... trouble is ... I can't get the pic's outta the damn book! They're heat welded in ...
here's the best scan I could come up with.
I was all excited to tell U to notice the casing is dropped to hide the metal track of the upgraded Johnson hardware ....

Thanks Jeff...I'm rocking!silver
Hope this isn't too late. This is a triple set of bypass sliding doors for a bedroom closet. I veneered the luan slabs with 1/4" maple cabinet plywood to match the maple floor.
I can shoot you higher-res pix if you can use them.
I thought about your post last night because the wife and kids got trapped briefly in our master bath - the youngest slammed the door hard enough to kick the back end up and catch on some trim!
Not too late and right on! Sliding/bypass doors are part of it...all types of interior doors...nice job too.high res? if you have timethanks!silver
Recently installed Bi-fold and Pass-by closet clear pine louvered doors.
You might also want to checkout the Hafele, Johnson and Grant websites for hardware pics and techniques. The slider hardware I used has anailer attached to it so that the casing conceals the head track and lines up with the adjacent swing door, as opposed to having a valence or the track visible.
Right on about the websites...haven't got there yet but I'll check it out.Power point is new to me;I know most microsoft programs so it shouldn't be too hard...have to pull this together for July 18...and like anything I do, I'm striving for excellence :>) Thanks!silver
If you need those pics in hi-res I can e-mail them to you. Pocketdoor install techniques have been discussed in the past if you search the archives. There are some novel ways of building the pockets other than the traditional ways that the Johnson kits supply. For example a common way here in NYC is to use 20Ga 1-5/8" metal stud lined with 1/4" luan on the interior faces.
I'll be doing a section on pocket doorsThanks,
bumpLast call-for interior door pictures...I'm putting my presentation together this weekend so if you have an interesting interior door situation, show me what ya got.Bonus for me is these pictures should be easy to manipulate into power point...which I'm starting a new thread on...seeing as I'm a power point newbie.Many thanks to all and have a good one!silver
