I have the plans for this door. I’m planning on making two of them this summer. As for the dowels, I don’t think the material for them is all that critical. I am using oak dowels for my doors.
I’m reworking my band saw to resaw 6” x 6” cedar beams and will plane to 1 1/2” thickness. If you need instructions on the draw bore joinery, PM me and I will be glad to share with you. Also, since I have small grand children running in and out all summer, I will use raised panels for the bottom.
Good luck on your screen doors. Rand
