I've been trying to find this wooden curtain rail but failed. Anybody know where can I buy these (or similar)?

That looks like a standard curtain track screwed to a wooden rail. An extendable track may work, but a better quality track cut to the correct length may be better. Where are you? Different areas will have different suppliers.

If your intent on having a pole then check out;

 

https://www.spotlightstores.com/nz/curtains-blinds/tracks/hand-drawn-tracks/tribeca-avenue-pole-track/BP80327984

 

Else, your best bet is to find a place that does free measure and quotes... 

 

I found Russels to be quite reasonable. Theres also Millers, Harveys etc etc... just google "curtains buy now NZ".

Auckland. Where would I get the half wooden rail though?

Pretty much any wooden architrave or Trim/mouldings store will have them,

 

heck even Bunnings appear to stock them

Hm, thanks for the tip - I'm not sure if the dimensions would be the same, will need to check but what about the ends? Any ideas?
