This barn clip art was derived from a corkboard pattern I made for a Christmas gift for my oldest daughter. The shape itself is very similar to the Barn Shaped Knick Knack Shelf I made for her a few years ago.
My daughter had been asking for a corkboard for some time. Since she loves animals I adapted the barn shape from her knick knack shelf to make a segmented picture frame in the shape of a barn.
If you look at the PDF file, you’ll find a few dimensions that will help you size it to the original. However, it can be adjusted to any size you like. For the one I built, I used 1/2” MDF and routed 1/8” deep pockets in the segmented areas. I then glued the cork into the routed pockets.
A simpler method would be to cut completely through the segmented areas and then mount the cork in one piece behind the entire frame. I would have done so, but I happened to have a 12” x 24” sheet of cork and was able to cut it into smaller segments. Otherwise I would have needed a piece of cork about 15” x 22”.
It occurred to me that the image may even be useful as clip art for printing. So in addition to including the vector artwork files and the PDF drawing, I also included a JPG image. If you just want the picture then right click on the large image below and save it to your computer.
The pattern was originally created as a DXF (AutoCAD) file from my solid modeling software. This and the PDF, AI (Adobe Illustrator), and EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) file formats are included in a ZIP file.
