New Wood Screen Door - Casita

Some months ago, I decided to try to construct a new screen door for our Casita 17SD... well, my first attempt didn't go all that well so I decided to try again. This morning, I finally finished this little project and got it installed. It is constructed from clear white ash with lacewood being used for the little "trees" at the bottom. All joints are of "half lap" glued with Titebond III and walnut dowels in "strategic" places... it's pretty darned sturdy!

All in all, I am delighted with the new "look" the screen door gives the Casita, both from the outside and the inside... I am hoping it will make a good "first impression" on our visitors...

I love it! Nice 'cabin in the woods' style.

I bet it gives your Casita a whole different feeling.

Now if you could just make that design into a rollup screen door then you could retire, beautiful, too bad it won't work with mine

To me, it has a sort of '50s vintage look to it. Very attractive!
