    There are many accordion doors for sale in the stores. They come with all the hardware you need. Also you could use a bi-fold door or more. All options depend on your width needed. Bi-fold doors can be trimmed slightly on the edge that moves. You may need to drill a new hole for the top roller point. Don't trim the side near the wall. There are 2 pivot points that would need to be moved.

    Cheaper to buy one than make one. All the hardware, hinges, super straight boards, and labor.

  • Hi Maria,

    Is this for a closet opening? I agree it would be difficult to make one. You could attempt to get a similar look with a curtain, but it wouldn't be as effective as blocking out the noise.
