Wooden Doors have the same function as Wooden Shutter , except it opens horizontally. First, use a wood that won’t rot, such as Honduras mahogany, teak or white oak.

It was a little tight, so we used a hand planer to remove a little bit of wood around the door.

Additional Stiles and Rails: Plane internal frame pieces thinner, flush with the rabbet, so you can still use single screen and storm panels.
