Yes, I'm a brand champion, but as I've mentioned elsewhere, I only deal with and recommend companies that I buy from irrespective of any support (free and discounted products) they provide.

Check out their products from Kreg Tools used extensively in this video.

The Details

It had HUGE hinged doors which, while nice, took up half the room to open and needed renovation. So I decided to replace them with a DIY sliding door system from Bunnings.


I made the hollow core MDF doors from scratch with Kreg pocket hole joinery, bought a Cowdroy track rail from Bunnings for them to run on, and installed a custom pelmet trim piece to cap it off.

This was a big project that took a few weeks on and off to complete but saved us heaps compared to a professional installation.
