Raised, Six Panel Closet Doors, Where?

I am about to take the current home remodeling project upstairs and I am looking to replace the existing masonite slab bifold closet doors (four closets with two sets of bifolds each) with something to match the oak 6 panel passage doors that I am installing.  I have checked Lowes, Home Despot, Carter Lumber, and the local plywood dealer in town with no solutions available other than special order.  I'd like to be able to pick up a set when I am ready for them and I'd like to be able to inspect what I buy before I pay.  Does anyone have any other possible sources for either bifold or by-pass oak raised panel doors?  Thanks.

If you are talking about bifold closet doors, I just bought 6 panel unfinished oak raised panel doors from menards for $89.   Ibought two sets which will fit in a 48" FINISHED opening

If you have a Windsor Plywood store in your area, they can make or get most anything.

I need help.  There is a Menards about a mile from my house.  Never thought to look there!  Their wood is so bad, I had written them off for that sort of stuff.  Thanks,  I'll look there.

Re: Raised, Six Panel Closet Doors, Where?

Hey Jim, why not just pick up some trim and cut it to whatever pattern you want to replicate on the front of the doors?

 

Inset a piece of 1/2 inch pine with a routed edge for the "Panel" and glue it in for that "raised" panel look with little to no cost.

 

You might have enough scrap to make everything you need.

Of course I don't look busy!!!

I did it right the first time!!!!

Thanks to Mark and all...

I went to Menards today and found exactly what I was looking for.  The oak 6 panel bifold doors are a dead match for the passage doors I have been installing in the house.  The closet doors come with all new hardware too.  All I have to do is mount new knobs.  I even found cabinet knobs at Menards that match the Schlage oiled bronze egg shaped door hardware we are putting on the new doors.  I appreciate all the help folks.
