Matt, you have some skills, nice design and execution, wecome to CT, complete your profile when you get a chance, GMOD:thumbsup:
where do you get that grating matt?I just got through building some screen doors and I thought some of you might be interested, so I thougt I would share a couple pictures. They are made out of dougles fir with two #20 biscuits at each connection and lots of TB-III. The screen is actually 1" thick fiberglass grate (so no one puts their hand through the insect screen inadvertently). It and the insect screen are sandwiched in with some rabbeted moulding that I milled out of the same fir. I don't have a hinge mortise jig so I made a makeshift one that cut all the way through, but it worked out fine because the doors are only 1 3/8" thick so to fully support the hinges needed to be cut through. Does that make sense? The doors will be painted brown I believe. They are going on some community laundry rooms. Anyway, I just thought someone might want to have a look.
I guess I would have used it because I would have used a different method that would require a more expansive glue to ensure full coverage. I like that the poly glue is so down right water proof too.Gus,
I'd be interested in your reasons for liking Gorilla glue over T/B III for this project.
Not disagreeing with you, just picking your brain.
That is a great idea right there.:notworthy:notworthy:notworthyGreat looking doors! Nice skill set you have in building them.
If your having second thoughts about the toughness of those joints; A pair of 3/4" wood dowels with poly glue in each of the 4 corners and the hinged side of the center rail, drilled from the outside will perform almost as good as a mortise-tenon joint and add extreme strength and life to the joints. They will look good too.
Atta boy :thumbsup:Thanks MBS, that is a great idea. It looks like I will be getting some dowels. I should have posted here for some suggestions BEFORE I built them. Live, Learn, and do it better the next time I guess.
