Designing and Cutting the Door Thinner wood stock is generally used when building a screen door generally in a five-eighths thickness. Choose a well-dried wood to avoid future wood shrinkage warping or swelling. Measure the dimensions of the door you need to construct and cut the horizontal and vertical pieces to fit. While constructing the door it can help to clamp the door pieces to a work table. To make the corner joins as well as when adding the center horizontal support piece you will need to take off half the thickness of one piece of wood where they will intersect with a saw so that the overall finished thickness of the joint will be equal to that of a single piece of wood.
Use a polyurethane glue and a brush to attach the wood support pieces together and then clamp and allow to dry completely. Once the glue joints are completely dry you can sand the door and apply a stain and clear finish or paint the door if desired. Adding the Screen to the Door Laying the door flat on the work table measure the overall opening and cut a piece of screen material to the proper size leaving several inches around the edges to make installation easier which will be trimmed later. Lay the screen over the top of the door frame and staple it to the top of the frame pulling it tightly towards the bottom of the door.

Screens with magnets that are glued on that are in direct sunlight will eventually fail. The sun melts the glue and the magnets will eventually misalign or even fall off.
