Well, other projects have been put on hold since our screen door has gone from “let’s fix that this spring” to “it’s falling apart in our hands.” So I’m going to attempt (something like) Tommy Silva’s design.
I cleaned up a couple of pieces of that century-old trim I picked up from my in-law’s remodel last year:
Those will be the rails. I’ll have to buy some lumber for the stiles since I don’t already have anything long enough.
Also, I found this gate on the sidewalk beside a trash barrel. I’ll take it apart and find some use for it!
