Half laps sound like the best idea for a screen, lerbi. If you like a project to justify a tool purchase, this one might get you a tenoning jig like this one although I question the “heavy duty” rating. there is a heavier one, and the heavier it is, the safer it is.

As for the material, the needs are: weather resistant (stable), able to take a finish (I presume) and fastener holding (assuming the screen is attached via screen mould).

This sounds like a satisfying project!
