Old metal screen door was falling apart, didn’t like the flimsy things at the BORGS, went out and picked out some Pine boards. Mortise and tenon joinery. Then add some pins and wedges when I put the pieces together.
Raised panels were done with just a handplane or two. Top half will get a frame to hold a screen, to make it a screen door. Used the existing door frame, the existing door hinges were rivetted in place. Might as well use them too. Even re-used the old latch…until the Boss decided she wants a new one.
The spring closer is installed. Now you can hear that Sproiiiing sound when the door opens and slams shut.
Not too bad a project. Maybe $65-80 completed. Might be better than a BORG screen door?
