Barn Door - Could this beautiful door be replicated with Bunnings materials?

Hi,

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?  barn door2.jpg

Hi @ColetteP

 

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.

 

Mitchell
