I know there was a post about this but I can't find it. I really want to see what is involved and try to build our own Dutch doors. The quotes I have gotten for getting them custom made have been pretty high.

Can someone post a link please?

I asked a couple years ago and got some great tops. I'll try and find it.

These are the ones I built for our barn. The frames and cross-members are 2X6"s the backing is 3/4" plywood. I only built the bottom ones, but for dutch doors, you would just build another an mount it on top.
