« Part 10: Fitting the tube. Part 11 of Spinnekop (windmill) series Part 12: Ankers »

This small mill has two doors. This is done so the housing is accessible even when the wings of the mill are turning in front of the door.

There are a lot of these small mills with only one door. Then you need to stop the mill before you can enter, so two doors are handy.

The lumber

Cutting the lap joints

Fitting it together

Cutting the beveled ends

The finished door frames

Mounting on the posts

All finished
