DIY-ing your very own rolling barn door is easier than you might think. It’s not as simple as, say, chewing, but also for the impact it provides, the do-it yourself is necessary. It can be said to be easy to do for any who is versatile.
For it’s a great way to make a big change in different rooms.
We used a miter saw and our pneumatic stapler for this door. A table saw can also come in handy. You may use as much as seven full pieces in making a barn door. If you need to adjust for the size of your door, it’s best to make the two outer parts of the same kind.
What do I mean by the same? I mean that if you need six inches from your installation of the full board trim, you do not lop off six from one end. You take three off each end. Also, you’ll be able to just buy a board or a size of two down: 1×8 > 1×6 examples. Or 1×8 > 1×4.
