How to make a wooden door for garage, bath-house, or a shed
We have decided to make an entrance door on our own.
Dimensions of our doorway are about 90х200 cm. We need 6 boards 2 meters long and 15 cm wide each.
About a quarter of volume is removed with the help of a jack-plane on side facets, then the door panel is assembled with clamps. It width is about 85 cm – the rest will be used for the door case.
To make the door cold proof, use roll insulation in the crevices between the boards.
The insulation that sticks out should not be cut – just put it deeper into the crevices – caulk.
As the result, the joints between boards look like that.
The main step is correct strengthening of the door panel. That’s why we just make inner frame with brace strut.
Later, the space between frame elements will be filled with insulation, and one more layer of boards will be laid above.
