Have a look at some of the images below. Yes, screws that are very visible and not attractive. The last image, one of our doors -no screws and we insert metal for aesthetics. Our wood (as you can see) is not faux or factory cut. It is direct from the mill, AND, by the way wood moves – Summer to Winter, dry to humid- it’s a natural product (or should be). So if you SCREW it together there is no ability for movement, hence why many barn door folks will not guarantee their doors.
