I spent the weekend making a new screen door. The door that was there when I bought the house had warped so badly that it could no longer shut. I priced a new screen door at Home Depot. They wanted $60 for a finger jointed pine door which was the same door that I was replacing.

Figured I could make something better. I went with Red Oak as I had a couple of boards given to me by a friend. Finished it with some Poly.
Hung it by myself, it was tricky. It could have been done better, but it works like a dream. Time to enjoy the Fall.

Good looking door, I like that quartersawn oak. It should be a good sturdy screen door.

That is some beautiful wood. That door should last years.

Have your say...
