I built some wood skins for my garage doors. My garage has 3 doors and there are 114 pieces in each door. This project took me all winter to do, but it was worth it. It has been 3 years and they still look great.

Wow! Those doors look fantastic. At first glance, no one would ever believe that’s an overhead door. Thanks for sharing.

I would have never thought to do that. Garage doors are one of those things you have replaced when the kids back into it. I think I may have to make me one and put steel post in the driveway to keep my kids away once they get their DL. LOL Great job and great idea.
Thanks for showing us and spreading ideas. I’m sure I’m not the only one trying to figure out how to budget the lumber into the next couple of months.

Great idea and even better execution! I’m curious, are your original doors fiberglass and how did you adhere the wood ones to the doors?
