very cool and sophisticated! good job! is there anything on the floor?

Thanks!

Currently nothing on the floor. There’s a guide to keep the door from swinging, but I would need to get a proper drill bit since my floor is marble.

Not too sure how heavy the door is. Should be at least 30kg.

The hardware can hold up to 175kg

Shouldn’t scrape the wall if you have no skirting, the rail protrudes out a little.

Good to have the guide, keeps the door from swinging. But the guide that comes with the set is plastic. I’ll be replacing it with a more sturdy steel L bracket drilled to my marble flooring.

Next up, bar table. Hoping to get it done by CNY

Edit: Sorry about the orientation. Not sure why it turned upside down.

I wonder do you use any kind of chem to stop water seepage into the wood. Some will stain the wood and ruined the whole thing.

I applied 3 costs of polyurethane which protects the surface.
