A “woodsy” screen door. The door is white pine, the trees are cedar. All mortise & tenon, with additional square pegs attaching the bottom panel to beef it up enough to withstand grandkids running in and out.

Really unique.. I love the wood choice too.. May I ask where you find screen door plans or did you create your own… I have a huge honey do list for my hubby and on that list is a screen door for my back patio before winter.. I just have not seen any plans for screen doors or I am not looking in the right place… What a terrific unique design..

My wife sketched out the idea and then I made it up as I went. This is one I was able to scratch off my honey-do list. (Had to build a patio shade to go with it to completely satisfy requirements though!) Hmmm, maybe I should post a pic of that project…

You can find several plans on various web sites by searching for ‘building a screen door’ on google. The article at looks like it might be fairly solid and your hubby could salt to taste.
