well swmbo wanted a screen door so as a woodworker rather than buy one of those cheap aluminum ugly ones i made one of course.wood used was mahogany because it was very straight grained and fairly light weight.put together with dominos.screen is attached with plastic screen spline pushed into a channel i routed then covered with a moulding.primed and painted.i wasn’t even done installing it and she had a wreath hung-lol.

Looks really nice! I’ll be installing a $300 ugly aluminum one shortly with help from a friend. But, I wanted one I can open in the fall with the glass & retractable screen in it. Yours looks great!

I really really like this! Beautiful design and craftsmanship. The “No Soliciting” is the icing on the cake!

Lovely door Pottz, a real classic. Nice joinery with the dominos.
Al round great.
Oh and I see that DT3 algorithm is working well. Well deserved.
