I cut out a one inch thick piece of Baby blue rigid foam insulation board to act as my temporary shop door till I can get a real one screwed together?

It really helps keep old man winter at bay. SO I was thinking why cant I just wrap it with say 1 inch by 3/4 inch lumber EDGES… 1/4 inch ply front and back. Glued! Maybe some 2×6 parts where door knob and hinges are to grab some screw threads>.

I guess what I am saying is is there any reason I can not sandwich some Blue Foam board between some thin plywood and call it a door?

The only reason would be security, but if you aren’t worried about that then go for it.

There are several commercially available products just like you describe.

They work great for insulated, cooled, wine display cabinets.

too late I did it and it looks great. Will send pics after I paint it!
