This is my first attempt to make a screen door. I started with rough cut redwood and milled all the parts. I am making it for a neighbor in exchange for favors from him. I finished my portion today with three coats of BLO. He will hang the door, add the screen and door latch. We opted for the raised panels instead of the screen because his dog has a tendency to run through the screen on bottom.
Thanks to Rob and David (socalwwod & patron) for their much needed advice on the joinery. I went with loose tenons instead of the through mortise and tenon. My neighbor is happy and I enjoyed this little project myself. I hope you like it as well.
I have added the last picture of the door with the screen.
