Let’s face it, not everyone is into D.I.Y. projects and not everyone is a handyman. And, although some may think the spice rack in the kitchen is top notch, taking on a project like a sliding barn door may not be the best thing to start.
Building a sliding barn door requires a lot of expensive tools. You may already have them around the house or you may be able to borrow them, but if you don’t know how to use them correctly, it could be very dangerous. With such a large object to build, knowing which tool to use is a must before starting any project.
If you feel confident in yourself regarding the tools you’re using, this may be your project. However, one crucial part to building a sliding barn door is measuring it perfectly. You have to measure more than the width and length of the door you’re replacing; it needs to be slightly larger in both areas. Not only do you have to measure the door area, but you also have to properly measure for the barn door hardware. This can be tricky if you don’t already have the barn door hardware available.
You can look up tutorials for both measurements, or you can go a much better route by shopping at New Haven Hardware. This will save you time and possibly money as you are guaranteed to have the right sliding barn door and barn door hardware.
