Hi, all -
So, the little dog taught the big dog that it’s possible to push out the screening in the patio door, and I need to come up with a new door. I was thinking of something that would have a panel in the lower 1/3 to keep canine noses out. The concept is super-straightforward, but I wanted to ask about techniques/tips/tricks for ensuring the screen will stay flat under the tension of the screen.
I might be worrying needlessly, but the wood can only be about 3/4” thick, and over 6’ or so I’m concerned that it will try to warp.
Any ideas? Also, any suggestions for the joints on the corners would we welcome, too.
