This step by step woodworking project is about free 6×12 shed door plans. This is PART 3 of the small storage shed project, where I show you how to build the front doors. This door will ensure you an easy access to the interior of the storage shed. These doors are super easy to build so you can save time and money. 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.

How to build a single shed door
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 door 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 door 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.
