The original screens were completely falling out.
I resawed the screens from douglas fir beams as usual and then joined them with my domino. First project to test the capabilities. Very Cool.
Rabbeting the screens with a rabbet bit.
Some chisel help to square the corners.
The trim pieces were made by ripping on the bandsaw, planing to final width, and then running the roundovers.
Sanding the screens. The raking light helps with discovering and fixing sanding scratches.
Unfortunately the screens take over the entire shop when finishing.
Prestain: Linseed Oil/ mineral spirits Wash
Stain: 2 Coats Early American Minwax
Top Coat: Marine Varnish
The screens are hung with storm sash hangers. They come in galvanized steel, but I painted them metalic bronze.
It is great to finish this project.
