This step by step woodworking project is about free 10×10 double shed doors plans. This is PART 3 of the barn shed project, where I show you how to build the double front doors. These 6′ wide doors will let you have an easy access to the interior of the shed. Take accurate measurements and double check them before making the cuts. Take a look over all my SHED PLANS, as well. See my other DIY projects HERE.
We recommend you to invest in the best materials you could afford. Therefore, you should buy weather-resistant lumber, such as pine or cedar. Always take accurate measurements before adjusting the size of the components at the proper size. Drill pilot holes trough the components before inserting the wood screws, to prevent the wood from splitting.

Building double shed doors
First of all, you need to attach the 2×4 jambs around the door opening. Align the edges with attention and then insert 2 1/2″ screws to lock the jambs into place tightly.
Continue by building the doors for the shed. Cut the panels from T1-11 siding and then attach the 2×4 trims. Align the edges flush and use 1 1/4″ screws or nails to assemble the doors.
Fit the double doors into place. Align the edges and lock them into place with hinges. Install a latch so you can lock the double doors into place tightly.
Make sure you take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and then smooth the surface with sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain to enhance the look of the shed. The coats of paint will prevent the wood from rotting and it will enhance the look of the shed.
