Large Shed Doors Plans

This step by step diy project is about shed double doors plans. This article is PART 3 of the 8×16 gable shed project, where I show you how to make the double doors for the shed. In PART 3 I also show you how to attach the trims to the shed, so you get the job done in a super nice manner. Take a look over the rest of my woodworking plans, if you want to get more building inspiration.

When buying the lumber, you should select the planks with great care, making sure they are straight and without any visible flaws (cracks, knots, twists, decay). Investing in cedar or other weather resistant lumber is a good idea, as it will pay off on the long run. Use a spirit level to plumb and align the components, before inserting the galvanized screws, otherwise the project won’t have a symmetrical look. If you have all the materials and tools required for the project, you could get the job done in about a day.
