12×16 Shed Double Doors Plans

This step by step woodworking project is about free double doors for a 12×16 shed. This is PART 3 of the project, where I show you how to build the double doors for the 12×16 shed. The double doors can be built easily, if you use the right techniques and tools. Remember that you need to read the local building codes before selecting the right location for the shed and before building the shed. 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

Start the last part of the 12×16 lean to shed project by fitting the jambs around the door opening. Cut the components from 2×4 lumber and attach them around the door opening, making sure the edges are flush. Drill pilot holes and insert 2 1/2″ screws for a professional result.

Continue the project by making the double doors. Cut the door panels from T1-11 siding and then attach the 2×4 trims into place with glue. Insert 1 5/8″ screws through the siding into the trims.

Fit the doors to the opening. Attach hinges, a latch and handles so you can lock the doors into place tightly. Check if the doors open properly and make adjustments if necessarily.

Window trims

Fit 1×4 trims around the window. Align the edges flush and insert 2″ brad nails to lock the trims into place tightly.

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