Screen Door Installed

I know, this is a little like double dipping for compliments.  But I have to!
The boss took the screen door home this weekend and installed it; took some pictures and sent them to me this morning.
I'm tell'n ya, I may have modify the design for windows (instead of screens) and build a custom storm door for MY house.

Closet and Screen Door - I's been a while.

Holy crap it's been a long time! 
I have been knocking out some projects lately and thought I would share.

First, my closet.....

First photo is the finished shot

What we have here is Maple plywood finished with Amber Shellac and trimmed with "select" pine covered with an expresso stain.  I planned to use maple for the face frame but the expresso is dark and didn't want to "waste" good maple by covering it up.  The rods are 1.375" Poplar stained with the same Expresso finish.

Next, the boss's screen door.
This was the jacked up screen door the owner of my company brought to me to fix or replace.  I replaced.

Here, we have a cedar door with removable screens.
I lapped the joints (except the center style, I used wood dowels for that) and pinned them with 1/2" Oak dowels.  Then I finished the whole thing with a couple coats of teak oil.
The owner comes back from vaca Monday.  I know he is happy with it, let's see what his wife thinks.

I am getting started on some custom picture/art frames so stay tuned my friends.

that is all, carry on.
