DIY Shed Door Plans
Top Tip: Building a door for the small shed is a straight-forward process, but you need to pay attention to the instructions described in the article. Work with good judgement if you want to get a proper result.
Building a shed door
The first step of the woodworking project is to attach the trims around the door jambs. As you can easily notice in the image, we recommend you to cut the 1×4 trims at the right size and to secure them into place with finishing nails and glue.
Top Tip: Leave no gaps between the trims before securing them into place. Smooth the cut edges with sandpaper, in order to get a professional result.
In order to build the actual door for the shed, we recommend you to use the piece of 5/8″ siding that has been cut out in the previous steps of the construction. Make sure the edges are smooth and in a good condition before attaching the trims into place.
The next step of the woodworking project is to attach the 1×4 trims to the door panel. Cut the components at the right size and assemble the door as shown in the image.
Top Tip: Leave no gaps between the trims and make sure there are aligned properly before inserting the finishing nails. Add waterproof glue to the joints, in order to create rigid joints. Add the diagonal trims to enhance the look of the shed door.
Build the door of the shed using 5/8” grooved plywood and 1×4 trims. Attach the rims along the edges of the door, as well as along the edges of the door opening, using 1 1/4” nails. Install several hinges and a simple latch.
Top Tip: Fill the holes with wood putty or using a sealer. Sand the wooden surfaces with 120 grit sandpaper, before applying primer and several coats of paint to the siding.
