This morning we put back the sliding doors for the toilet in the Garden Room. They were given a clear coat of varnish a little while ago. We changed the locking mechanism to grip the drive cord running around the two pulleys so it would be easier to release the doors from the drive cord in the future. We have smoothed down the edge and corners of each door and painted down the middle with Walnut varnish to darken the white fermacell to match the colour of the magnetic strips we are planning to use to provide a locking mechanism and also a soft buffer to avoid the clunk noise when the doors slide together!

Later on, we will put in an electric motor and control circuits to control the doors for us and automatically close or open the doors on a press of a switch etc.
