This time a quickie – still for the family. And now I could build it within the confines of my workshop using my usual techniques. The wood is from the left over from the Rustic Build The wood was only 3.5’ long, hence the unorthodox frame structure.

-
Pegged M&T, rounded everywhere, and the screen is locked with thin strips squeezed in the notch inside the frame. They turned out pretty darn tense. Thin strips were left over from my next post. ;-)

-
Waiting to be installed.
Thanks for looking.

Looks good. Nice peg work. Unorthodox? How?

The last screen doors I bought were made out of a bunch of finger-jointed scraps and fell apart in 2 years. You have reminded me that I need to build one myself!

Thanks guys.
Doors have almost exclusively full length stiles.
These doors have full length rails instead.

Having 10×40x40mm pegged tenons here, makes only a little difference in strength.

Johnny this is great…I love this BL and also the simplicity of the project which looks great. Actually when I’m thinking now about it, I think that this is the charm of all of your projects. So simple design, clean cuts, perfect joinery.
It’s a weekend on the lake for the eyes.

Thanks guys.
Wow Alex, words must like you. That was probably the nicest compliment I’ve ever heard.
Thank you very much.
