I recently bought a made in America dowel jig at a yard sale for $3.00 and wanted to try it out. Since I had a 6 foot piece of 1×8 poplar laying around, I decided to rip it down to 2” widths and build a screen door for the 1956 Shasta. Here’s a picture of it before assembly with all the dowels ready for glue up. The dowel jig is the black and aluminum piece with the T handle on it.
I ran screws through the bottom and top pieces to clamp everything into place after I glued the dowels. Here it is glued up, stained and poly’ed.
The handle access is covered with a piece of birch plywood with an aluminum slider and the screen molding is made from fir, so there’s a little color difference in the wood.
