A Rustic and Traditional Sliding Barn Door


This barn door is simply a classic. It’s that rare design that cannot be improved. If you want a rustic sliding barn door that will always look good, this is the only one you need. This sliding door features four vertical planks with rails at the top and bottom, and two diagonal braces that form an X. It’s one of our most popular sliding barn door kits for a reason. The best part about it is that you have lots of customization options to really make it feel like yours. 


Choose from twenty different wood species, including American classics like Hickory or Cherry, or exotic options like Afromosia or Sapele Mahogany. This way you’re sure to find a wood species that complements your interior design style. You can also choose to finish the door yourself at home, or we will apply Clear Satin EuroFinish or an Oil Stain EuroFinish in nine different color options. Or we’ll prime it for you to paint! 


The X Brace Sliding Barn Door is perfect for you if your interior design taste leans rustic. But it also looks good in a variety of décor styles thanks to the simplicity of the design. Here are just some of the décor styles we recommend pairing with this door: 

  • Scandinavian 
  • Minimalist 
  • Industrial 
  • Farmhouse


Skilled artisans make all our doors by hand onsite in Gig Harbor, a small seaport town on the Puget Sound in Washington State.

Please note that doors will ship separately from sliding hardware when purchased together. Doors are pictured with hardware for context. Sliding hardware is sold separately, and not included with the purchase of a door. Doors are not pre-drilled for hardware. If you order a door and a hardware kit, we are unable to ship hardware installed on doors due to the risk of damage in transit. 


We designed these doors with interior applications in mind. We don't recommend exterior use, and can't guarantee against warping or damage if you install your door outside. To have this door specially crafted for exterior use, call us at 1-253-853-3815 and we’ll be happy to help! 


If you wish to customize the door even further, we can make your dream door a reality! Please understand that customization will add to the lead time. If you need more than 10 doors, or if your project requires special consideration, please call 1-253-853-3815

When determining the size of your barn door, we recommend that the door overlaps the doorway to minimize gaps and provide some sound-muffling for privacy. An inch of overlap on each side is a good rule of thumb for barn doors. For example, a 36” x 80” doorway would need a 38” x 81” sliding barn door. If you would like more sound sealing, then a 2-inch overlap on either side is best. To make sure it looks as intentional as possible, your barn door should also completely cover any molding or trim on the door opening when closed. So, you’ll need to factor that into your measurements as well.

RealCraft offers twenty different wood species from budget-friendly to exotic and rare. One of the reasons we love real wood so much is that it carries the character of its natural habitat. Wood species respond differently to humidity and temperature conditions. If you aren't sure which wood species to pick, call us at 1-253-853-3815


We recommend adding a clear finish to your door to protect it and ensure that it is eligible for coverage under our warranty. A clear finish not only protects your door, it also enhances the door’s beauty while preserving its natural, unique texture. Clear finish brings out the color and detail of the wood grain.  If you order your barn door unfinished, we recommend applying a high quality finish product that will seal the wood within five days of delivery.


We offer the following finish options: 

White Primer: Added to Paint Grade Hardwood. For this option, we use only high-quality hardwoods like European Beech or Red Grandis. These species provide a smooth surface for paint. 

Clear Satin Eurofinish by Osmo: A premium hand-rubbed hardwax oil that conditions, seals, and finishes the wood. 

Oil Stain EuroFinish by Osmo: A premium hand-rubbed hardwax oil that stains, seals, and finishes the wood.
