This step by step woodworking project is about free 10×10 garden shed double doors plans. This is PART 3 of the garden shed project, where I show you how to build the double doors for this beautiful storage shed. In addition, I show you how to enhance the look of the shed by fitting a few trims. 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.

How to build double shed doors
The first step of the project is to attach the 2×4 jambs around the door opening. Align the edges with attention and secure the jambs into place with 2 1/2″ screws. Insert the screws every 8″ along the framing.
Build the double doors from T1-11 siding and from 2×4 lumber. First, you need to assemble the door frame using pocket holes and 2 1/2″ screws. Make sure the corners are square and align the edges with attention. Fit the panels to the door frames and secure them into place with 2″ brad nails.
Fit the doors to the door opening and secure them to the jambs with hinges. Install a latch so you can lock the door together properly. Moreover, install handles so you can open and close the doors easily.
The next step of the project is to fit the 1×4 trims to the sides of the shed. Align the edges flush and insert 2″ brad nails to lock the trims into place tightly.
Fit the trims to the back of the shed, as well.
Last but not least, you need to fit the trims to the front of the shed. Make the cuts, align the edges and insert 2″ brad nails to lock them into place tightly.
