Barn Door Bin Hideaway
The bin area can be the one spot in the yard everyone wants to stay clear of, but installing a screen can be the perfect solution for keeping the waste bins concealed.
This screen consists of a stationary panel, which is secured to the pergola and pavers, and a sliding panel. The sliding panel is attached to the pergola using a barn door kit, which is available from specialist suppliers or online.
The frames for the two panels are made from hard-wearing meranti, and clad with recycled tallowwood, milled from old railway sleepers.
Cut the two frames and cladding with a sliding compound mitresaw.
Mark housings for half-lap joints and cut shoulders using a circular saw set to 9mm deep.
Make relief cuts and chisel out the waste, smoothing the cheeks.
