I'm looking to ask my husband (or perhaps my builder) to try to create/replicate the timber barn door in this picture as I can't seem to find anything similar to purchase. I just love the look of the timber and the plain and simple design. I need the barn door to be approx 2100mm high x 900mm wide. Does anyone have any ideas/hacks as to how we might go about this using Bunnings materials?
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @ColetteP. It's wonderful to have you join us and we are looking forward to seeing what you can create. I'm sure you will get some great ideas from our community members.
Normally I would ask the ever-helpful @MitchellMc to assist but he is taking a well-earned break at the moment. Let me tag some other members who might like to share their thoughts in the meantime: @ProjectPete, @Peggers, @woodenwookie, @mattoharae
You might also get some inspiration and information from these projects shared previously by other community members:
Hope that helps get you started. Please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site. We're here to help.
If there is nothing in our barn door range that takes your fancy, I'm sure we can create a door similar to your image. I'd recommend starting with a Hume Doors & Timber 2100 x 920 x 35mm Blockboard Flush Exterior Door. You can then glue strips of Porta 40 x 5mm 2.4m Tasmanian Oak Moulding Rounded Edge Coverstrap over the door's face to create the panelled look. You might also find a sheeting in our Easycraft VJ range that could be used.
You could also consider using a timber finished door like the InBuilt 25mm 2100 x 1000mm Flush Barn Door Natural Wood and routing grooves similar to your inspiration image.
I'll be keen to follow your project and look forward to seeing what you can achieve.
