  Making Wooden Storm Doors is a fun and   

  intense, three-day, hands-on learning 


  experience. Students will learn how to make

  wooden storm doors. You will be part

  of a team building exterior storm doors for the

  circa 1859 historic Lamb-Munger Mansion in the

 Central Park National Historic District in Hannibal, Missouri.


  This is a tuition-based class with a limit of 10 students. You will be working side-

  by-side all three days in the shop with instructor Bob Yapp. Bob has been a

  woodworker and furniture designer/maker for 43 years.


  This will be an intense, learn-by-doing opportunity. You will learn why wood

  storm doors are important, what styles of storm doors are best for your old house 

  or building, how to measure an opening for a storm door, how to grade/pick

  lumber, storm door construction, glass/screen installation weather-stripping &

  installation techniques.


  We will be constructing combination wood storm/screen doors with removable

  and interchangeable screen and glass panels. At the end of the three days you will  

  know from beginning to end, how to completely build a wooden storm door. All

  students completing the class will receive a "Certificate of Completion".


  Homeowners, small contractors, preservation staff, preservation commission

  members, hp students and historic building owners will all benefit from this  

  hands-on, traditional training event. All skill levels are encouraged to sign up.


  Tuition for this three-day workshop is $400 and includes morning coffee/snacks,  

  beverages and lunch. Space is limited to ten students in each session and pre-

  registration is required to secure a spot in the class.


  Inexpensive motels as well as bed & breakfast inns are available for out of town 

  students. For more information or to pre-register call Bob Yapp, 217-474-6052 or
