12×16 Barn Shed Doors Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about free 12×16 shed double doors plans. This is PART 3 of the 12×16 storage shed project, where I show you how to build the double doors. Remember that you can make a lot of adjustments to the size and to the design of the shed project, so it suit your needs properly. 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.

Last but not least, you need to take care of the finishing touches. Fill the holes with wood putty and smooth the surface with 120-220 grit sandpaper. Apply a few coats of paint or stain over the components, so you enhance the look of the project.
