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.

Beautiful.

Different that any other.  I like custom like that.

Nice job

Petey

Nice! Are the holes beagle-sized?

May you have the day you deserve!

Very nice work, great looking door. All the muntins are lined up perfectly. 
You have built yourself a beautiful Screen Door centrally not  one of those cheap aluminum ugly ones. Very nice good job.

That looks great Pottz. routing a channel for the screen is a good idea to help with the instalation.

Nice Pottz! I made this door for the chicken coop a few years back. Kinda somewhat similar to yours…

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Pottzy, they’re super quiet. Just build a coop and go for it. No one will know.

Great looking door Pottz and I'm almost over the painting of mahogany thing, ha! My city of Calgary has now allowed a finite number of chickens for personal use in backyard coops. Seems to be working so far as long as Foghorn isn't involved in early morning symphonies. :) Cluckingham Palace. I love it!!

Mine was built as a two story chicken apartment. According to the book, they need about 2-3 sq ft of coop space, and about 6 sq ft of run space. So a 6’x6’ run area below the apartment  allows you up to 6 birds, with about half that space for the second floor coop. If you don’t get bad weather (which, by chicken standards, neither of us do Pottz), then you don’t need a closed-in coop. As long as it keeps them out of the wind, they’re good. I built ours as a ‘open-concept’ type coop so it was an easy build. Simple deal Pottz, you can find 6’x6’.
