I'm screening in my front porch and considering building my own door, but have no
special equipment to do joinery.
Here's the plan:
Using 1x6 lumber, each stile and rail will be two boards glued together and joined using dowels.
Each corner and joint will be offset by the width of the lumber, in effect creating half-lap joints
at each connection. So the front and back sides would look like this
Would glue and dowels alone be strong enough to hold this together?
If so, would glueing boards together curtail warping enough to allow me to
use pressure treated lumber?
This door would slide from a trolley track above with no bottom track.
